Md. counties seek to track recycling

By Washington Post editors

Several Maryland jurisdictions have found a way to monitor participation in their recycling programs, The Examiner reports.

Frederick and Howard counties and Gaithersburg have bought nearly 150,000 recycling bins with tracking microchips to try and figure out how often residents put their recycling bins out for pickup.
The technology does not measure how much or what is put in the bins.
