Moderator: Ralph Bohn (UT)
Discussion Facilitator: Mark de Bie (CA), Chair, ASTSWMO Solid Waste Subcommittee
This session will explore options and new sources of funding for State solid waste regulatory programs. Many States that rely on per ton fees collected on waste disposed at landfills have experienced a downturn in the revenue collected. This downward trend, although exaggerated by the current economic climate, has been going on for some time and is the result, at least in part, of the effort to divert waste from landfilling to more useful purposes. A speaker will present some possible funding sources that have been identified for funding recycling programs. We will follow the presentation with a facilitated discussion of funding options for State regulatory programs.
-Jeremy O’Brien, P.E., Director of Applied Research, Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), Silver Spring, MD, will discuss a SWANA study of alternative financing for recycling
