Subject: Waste Disposal

Governing reports on changes that take place in local waste management systems, as governments "confront rapidly evolving solid waste policy requirements." The story looks at administrators' ambitious efforts to build costly incinerators or to increase the capacity of landfills, while the amount of solid waste is growing nationwide. Recycling programs can hardly grow anymore, the magazine reveals. The main finding is that today's counties and cities see more potential for "preventing waste through source reduction programs, spurring markets for recyclable materials and working with innovative private ventures that use or dispose of wastes."
