Getting The Most Value From Waste Characterization Data For Program Planning And Design
To effectively design and monitor a solid waste program, it's necessary to assess disposal practices and understand the content of the waste stream. Waste characterization studies supply this necessary information. Data gathered during waste sampling can present a complete picture of disposal, which is useful for:

• Analyses of the efficacy of current waste diversion programs,
• Identifying new diversion opportunities or identifying trends from conditions such as COVID-19,
• Determining the mix of recyclables collected in designated recycling programs and contamination rates,
• Identifying the potential for waste–to–energy and reuse projects using selected waste streams.

Not just for landfills anymore, these studies are helping Material Recovery Facilities, collection programs for food recovery, organics management, and composting work more efficiently. Together our panel will discuss how states, municipalities, and regions are experiencing some surprising results and how they get the most out of every study.

This SCS panel includes guest speakers to provide a fuller perspective on how states and municipalities use the data to accomplish their solid waste management goals. Tim Flanagan, General Manager of the MRWMD, and Casey Lamensky, Solid Waste Coordinator for the WDNR join Stacey Demers, a LEED® Accredited Professional and SCS's National Expert on solid waste composition studies, with Betsy Powers, PE, SCS's Civil and Environmental Engineer, supporting the recent study published by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

SCS's format allows you to ask questions throughout the event and ask them anonymously if you prefer. A Certificate of Attendance is available on request. We realize October is extraordinarily busy this year, so we'll send you the recording if you register but cannot attend.
