Organics Diversion and Your Current Waste Management System


Organics diversion is a rapidly growing segment of the solid waste industry. And while regulation on a national level is not a reality, many state and local governments are beginning to mandate it. For example, aggressive new legislation in California is requiring organics diversion, putting immense pressure on existing waste management systems to build additional infrastructure and operations to adjust to this changing waste stream.

The bottom line is this: if you are involved in the solid waste industry, you know organics diversion is on your horizon and that it may necessitate significant changes like expanded collections routes, the purchase of new equipment, or even the construction of new facilities.

But if we take a moment to reflect, we might begin to realize that our recycling industry is struggling because we put the cart before the horse—or, more specifically, the diversion before the market. Let’s not make the same mistake again!

Before diving headfirst into organics diversion, we should step back and evaluate how it will impact current waste management systems. In order to divert organics, there must be investment into new equipment, facilities, and processes. To maximize resources, organizations should start with an assessment of their current waste system, viewed through the lens of process improvement in an effort to identify inefficiencies and areas for improvement.

And that’s where we come in…

Join Forester University for this live, educational webinar as returning speaker Neal Bolton, waste industry expert and President of Blue Ridge Services, discusses the challenges of organics diversion and how to use process improvement to better plan for and manage this part of your waste operation.
