Although avoided disposal fees are an important financial justification on a microeconomic level for many collection programs, avoided landfill disposal fees have nothing to do with how recycling or composting works on a macroeconomic level.

Considerations for Contracting New Waste & Recycling Services

Storage: Recycling Logistics, Part 2

Storing stuff, at least commercially, can be harder than you think. When you grow up with a family member that is a borderline hoarder, that can be a surprising realization. After all, if one person can store every issue of Consumer Reports since 1978 just in case they need to look up a review of something they buy at a yard/tag/garage sale (I wish I was making that part up), you would think that a campus of 10,000 could fairly easily store a trailer-load of baled paper in order to ship it to market.
