What's Ahead for Solid Waste Management

OnDemand Webinar (83 minutes)

Understand the changes in solid waste management and where the industry is heading.This topic is intended to provide you with an overview of how solid waste management has evolved in the U.S. since it first became a social focus decades ago, based on the federal government's desire to replace open dumps and uncontrolled incineration with more resource conservation and recovery focused approaches. In addition to addressing the evolution and current state of recycling, organics, collection, and technologies, where the solid waste management industry might be heading will be discussed along with the role legislation and ordinances can play.
