2014 Dumpster Dive Results

  • Green Efforts held its 7th Annual Dumpster Dive on April 22, 2014 to see how many recyclables are in our waste stream. See results below:

    • 73.5% Garbage
    • 17.4% Plastics
    • 7.3% Paper
    • 1.3% Metal
    • 0.5% Glass

  • City of Glendale does not recycle glass. Add glass to garbage and the total percentage of garbage is 74.1%.
  • The results of the Dumpster Dive is that 25.9% (plastics, paper, and metal) of our waste stream could have been recycled. Our goal is to get the plastics out of the waste stream and into the recycle bins.
