Waste Reduction & Recycling Assistance Program

A goal to reduce the per capita amount of waste disposed of in landfills by 30% by 2040 over 2011 was established by a 20-member Citizen Advisory Committee in the development of the Solid Waste Management Plan 2040. Businesses, including industries, institutions and multi-family apartment complexes, can help achieve this goal by enhancing or establishing recycling and composting programs.
