    Waste Management of King County (Washington) used to collect paper in covered plastic bins the size of our "blue bins" that we use for cans & bottles & plastic. Then they switched to mixed (single-stream) recycling in a huge covered bin the size of our yard waste bins. I was going to request that Vancouver do that too, until I read this study which shows it's not as efficient: So even if mixed recycling would result in more people doing it, I think the best solution is to keep doing paper separately but give us covered plastic bins so the paper doesn't get soggy. Not only do the bags blow away, they get all gross with mud after a rain storm, they aren't big enough, and they eventually tear if you overstuff them.
