August Waste Industry Update

August Waste Industry 2022

*We’ve put together the best waste industry news from August!*

Are you working to meet new waste and recycling regulations? Are you thinking of cracking down on certain materials? Do you ever wonder what each state requires when it comes to organic waste? Between our digital communication tools, industry expertise and this handy compilation of organics recycling policies, we’ve got you covered!

From California’s Senate Bill 1383 requiring mandatory organics collection and education, to Vermont’s and New York’s waste diversion or recycling requirements for organic waste, and everywhere in between, communities across North America are getting greener by the day — and you can, too.

No matter whether your municipality or state is up against organics regulations, or you’d simply like to implement your own, engagement makes all the difference in the world when it comes to carrying out any successful waste program — and some digital waste and recycling communication tools can help. From the Curbside Audit Tool to help you plan and measure progress, to the Waste Wizard that’ll help you empower your community to recycle right, we can help you meet your recycling goals and have a little fun along the way.
