Evolving Waste Management Practices

The field of waste management is constantly evolving, and so too is Broome County's approach. Our plan focuses on sustainable waste management practices, including waste reduction, recycling, composting, and proper disposal. By implementing these practices, we aim to minimize the environmental impact of waste and promote a cleaner, greener future.

Our aim is to maximize resource recovery and minimize landfill usage, creating a more sustainable waste management system.

Education and Outreach

An informed community is essential for successful waste management. We believe that education and outreach are key components of our plan. Through community workshops, school programs, and public awareness campaigns, we aim to educate residents about proper waste disposal, recycling best practices, and the importance of waste reduction. By empowering our community with knowledge, we can collectively make a positive impact.

Collaboration with Stakeholders

Waste management is a shared responsibility, and collaboration with stakeholders is vital to our plan's success. We actively engage with local businesses, environmental organizations, and government agencies to develop partnerships, seek innovative solutions, and ensure compliance with waste management regulations.
