A public recycling program is established once you have
- analyzed your waste stream
- researched markets for individual components, whether with preexisting processors or remanufacturers, or with businesses or publicly owned enterprises which you create, usually with public/private cooperation
- conduct a pilot scale study of how a full or phased in system will work (usually by hiring an experienced consultant)
- getting and sustaining public support and official support through education on an ongoing basis.
- sometimes built a Materials Recycling Facility
Many previous answers in the archives of this website bear on these elements. Additionally, there are manuals available from eg INFORM, US EPA, Clean Washington Center, WARMER Bulletin (UK), Ontario (Canada) Recycling authority (called something else) which can help. The US EPA ones can be viewed at www.epa.gov uncer Decision-Makers Guide to Solid Waste Management, 2nd ed.
