The convenience of single-stream recycling can increase participation at the point of generation, thereby diverting waste from landfills. Single-stream optimizes fleet and manpower requirements by cutting down on collection vehicles and eliminating the requirement for specialized trucks. Over time, this reduces traffic congestion and the energy required during the collection of the material through greater payloads and a "one route, one truck" collection methodology.
