It seems that most people these days (at least in WA State), recycle TOO much and end up inadvertently contaminating the recycle stream with things like styrafoam, glass and un-recyclable plastics like Starbucks cups. We have a client who wants to address the issue in their City by updating their approach and outreach materials.

I am looking for any target audience research, successful programs, created materials or general insight, to encourage residents who recycle using a co-mingled recycle container at their home (everything goes in one tall bin) to reduce contamination of the recycle stream.
