From here:

http://blogs.vancouversun.com/2011/12/04/a-lesson-on-recycling-from-tucson-arizona/

"Waste workers in Tucson did spot checks on resident blue bins and then graded the residents. Those who used the bins for recycling — that is as they are supposed to be used and almost 30 per cent did — got a rewards card with two-for-one specials at a number of restaurants. Those who used the blue bin as a second trash can – almost 20 per cent of those checked – got red-tagged and the garbage was left behind. Three red tags and you’re out — the blue bin will be taken away.

The remainder of residents did an okay job, the story says. But the biggest issue was plastic bags. Plastic bags, even if filled with recyclables, are tossed by the recycling facility contents and all because the bags gum up the works and there isn’t time to open each bag to extract what’s inside. The city says obviously more education is needed to get people to use the bins correctly."

How can we apply this to an apartment building?
