Using Integrated Resources Management System to Improve Your Landfill´s Image
Opposition to siting of new landfills is common worldwide due primarily to negative public perception. The success of the Halton Waste Management Site (HWMS) was through instituting of an integrated resources management system. In addition to a sanitary landfill, there is a small load transfer station, a compost site, a concrete and asphalt recycling site, and a household hazardous waste depot. The HWMS has created special events such as compost give-away, annual tree planting, and tire amnesty days. Crops are grown onsite for developing nations. This integrated system attracts customers and visitors, receives good media coverage and improves our image.
