Solid Waste Management Facilities

solid waste management facilities special research report Photo by
Director of Environmental Stewardship, DND, first described his department's experience in solid waste management. DND produced its first SDS in 1997 targeting a 10% reduction in solid waste sent to landfill by 2000. A target of 3% reduction was established in the 2000 SDS, but this proved too marginal and difficult to measure. Reporting on solid waste management continues to date but without quantifying a target. Preparation for the 2006 SDS is underway and other than a commitment to reduce solid waste to landfill, there is no indication that a ...

U.S. Solid Waste Industry, The: How Big is It?
Measuring the size of the U.S. solid waste industry has never been as easy as stepping on a scale or whipping out a ruler — until now. In the past, the availability of independent, authoritative, comprehensive and statistically defensible data has been limited because of the significant number of private and public sector players in the market and the wide range of services provided. But the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF), Washington, D.C., in 1999, decided to find these elusive numbers and contracted R.W. Beck Inc. (Beck), Orlando, Fla., to tackle the task. The research took nearly 18 months. But ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Measuring Waste and Recycling in Virginia - Virginia Performs
Virginia's solid waste stream has grown over time. Although potential landfill space is available in Virginia, the transportation and disposal of solid waste remain a concern. Landfills are associated with pollution risks to soil, air and water; odors; and increased traffic from heavy trucks loaded with landfill-bound waste. Unless properly constructed, maintained and monitored over a long period of time, landfills can leak highly contaminated leachate ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Campbell County asks state Supreme Court to overturn $9M judgment
Campbell County officials have asked the Supreme Court of Virginia to overturn a $9 million judgment made in a lawsuit alleging the county landfill leaked, polluting the well water of an adjacent mobile home park. The petition to the state’s highest court argues that Circuit Court Judge Michael Gamble misapplied state and federal environmental laws. The petition also argues Gamble should have struck down the jury’s judgment because it was in excess of the damages suffered by the Twin Oaks Park owners. Before the October civil trial, Gamble ruled the county was liable for groundwater pollution from the landfill leak. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Trash Talk: A growing landfill splits state government
It is the only state-owned landfill in Maine, and its primary obligation is the responsible disposal of hundreds of thousands of tons of trash each year — but only trash that is generated in Maine. Unlike the Pine Tree Landfill in Hampden, a privately owned facility 20 miles to the south that stopped accepting waste at the end of last year, Juniper Ridge is poised for significant growth. But the magnitude and direction of the facility’s growth, as well as its future management and regulation, are a matter of significant speculation and division. The origin, makeup and quantity of waste material brought to Juniper Ridge since it ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What are the zero waste management programs here in the ...
"The Zero Waste Management (ZWM) extends the principles of recycling to form a circular system where as much of the original material as possible is reused. Discarded materials are not seen as garbage in need of disposal but as valuable resources in need of new application." "Chemist Paul Palmer, who was the first to use the term in the mid-1970s, says that zero waste depends on the redesigning of industrial, commercial, and consumer goods. While recycling contents itself with attempting to deal with goods after they have become waste materials." "Dr. Metodio Palaypay, a former professor of the UP College of Medicine and ...
Waste Management: Four approaches, solid waste management ...
It is me again.  I do not know if this is your area of speciality, but I would like to know about the the four approaches to solid waste management?   Answer Hi again. Thank you for the comments. It is nice to know I was helpful. If I understand the question correctly, they are: 1. Disposal - Waste is buried in landfills or burned in incinerators (disposal facilities) 2. Recycling - instead of using a disposal facility, recyclable materials are segregated and processed into raw material for making new items. Example: old newspaper can be recycled to create new newspaper. 3. Re-use - Items are used again instead of ...
