Communities across the country have been searching for ways to increase participation in recycling programs while simultaneously reducing the amount of waste they have to deposit in landfills. Reducing the need for landfill space not only helps the environment, but also reduces costs since comm unities have to pay for every truckload of garbage that goes to the landfill.

Some larger cities have rolled out systems that use mobile computers and even RFID tags to help manage recycling programs.
