Abstract

The purpose of the Rural Recycling Hub and Spoke Recycling Project study was to inventory existing recycling operations within rural Iowa, and assess the feasibility of creating rural partnerships with a hub and spoke type of system. A hub and spoke system involves recycling hubs shouldering the financial burden of operating a recycling center that processes material, while benefitting from capturing value from the recyclable materials that they market. The spokes provide the hubs with their recyclables to process. Spoke communities do not benefit from the sale of the recyclables, but they are not liable for the expenses of operating a recycling processing center.
