  7. 7. Future Considerations to Maximize Diversion As we learn more about zero-waste initiatives, we want to ensure that an opt-in SSO program would complement or not be redundant with future potential waste reduction efforts. • Targeted outreach and education • Increased opportunities for other recycling • Ordinance modification and creation • Revisit variable rate billing fees • Resource recovery of garbage (sorting garbage) 7
