What is the benefit of single stream?

Again, not having to separate recyclables adds convenience. Studies show single stream brings with it an increase of 10% or more in recycling. The more we recycle, the less we need to landfill. Last year, recycling saved the towns more than $3.2 million in landfill tipping fees. Those cost-savings are effectively tax savings, since they improve the bottom line of municipal budgets.
