Alameda County, California (pop. 1.46 million), diverts almost 60% of its municipal solid waste, making it one of the nation’s record-setting recycling communities. The Alameda County Waste Management Authority and Recycling Board deserves much credit. This glossy booklet — chock full of case studies and photographs — features the Board’s source reduction, reuse, construction material recycling, composting, market development, green building, and outreach initiatives.
