On Thursday, May 15, from 2:00 pm until 3:15 pm EDT, the National Association of Counties (NACo) will be holding a webinar discussing tools and strategies needed to incorporate sustainable strategies into their counties waste management practices.
From NACo’s website:
New approaches to waste management can enable counties to reap significant environmental and financial benefits. For example, landfill diversion programs can increase county recycling rates and extend the life of existing landfills. Naturally occurring methane at landfills can be captured and used as a source of renewable energy, reducing methane emissions and offering energy savings and new streams of revenue. Fuel efficient fleets can reduce vehicle emissions and save on fuel costs.
