Solid waste

Many government agencies across the country provide the collection and disposal of solid waste for their residents. There are many different service delivery and governance options that can be used to provide the most efficient and cost-effective service. In addition, municipal leaders must keep up with the solid waste industry’s frequently changing regulations and new and improved ways to dispose of waste in an environmentally friendly and financially sound manner.
