• Optimizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness of solid waste systems is of critical importance to solid waste program managers, and many solid waste management departments are striving even harder now to achieve higher, sustainable recycling and waste reduction goals.


Aims to clearly identify solid waste objectives and lay out a plan to accomplish goals, including:

  • Sustainable recommendations for enhancing waste diversion.
  • Key policies that are necessary or should be considered.
  • Programs for achieving success.
  • Facilities needed to complement these programs.
  • Financial analysis of the long-term viability of the solid waste system.

“Our transition was incredibly smooth, because of the team we had; of which you played a critical role to ensure success.”

Solid Waste Director, City of Sarasota, FL
