Regionalization / Solid Waste Management Success StoriesStreaming Video - 2008
With more than half of America's landfills already closed, it is predicted that 22 states will soon run out of landfill capacity. Episode one of this program presents regionalization, the pooling of municipal resources across political boundaries, as a partial solution. Environmental project specialist Elizabeth Tarver, representatives of BFI and Waste Management, and others address topics such as creating economies of scale, gaining political buy-in, and developing partnerships between the public and private sectors. Episode two, a summary of the series, features notable successes in diverting recyclables, greenwaste, and special waste from the municipal solid waste stream.
