Waste as a resource
Every municipality produces and manages waste. Many waste management strategies can be costly, complicated and can have negative environmental impacts on your community. Explore ways your municipality can turn waste into a resource, and generate economic, social and environmental benefits for your community, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions and lowering waste management costs. See what options may work for you to help make your community more sustainable.
