Waste and Landfill

The solid waste generated by the community and how it is transported to the landfill.

The Climate Action Office partners with Environmental Health Specialist, Liz Chapman, to carry out waste reduction and diversion programs. Together, we are actively working to: 
  • Increase participation in composting and recycling leading to increased diversion.
  • Maximize diversion of construction and demolition (C&D) waste
  • Increase community compliance with waste diversion ordinances
  • Improve existing waste hauling practices
  • Support relevant federal and state policies through active legislative and regulatory engagement. Here is our list of state and national peer action groups.
