What increases recycling and diversion the most? How can jurisdictions make informed choices to make effective - and cost-effective changes? This webinar presents practical alternatives backed up by real-world analysis.
This SWANA Webinar is based on data collected nationwide on almost three dozen different programmatic, efficiency, and policy options available. This data has been statistically analyzed to reveal their "real world" performance. The focus was on both tons and costs so that cost-effectiveness could be properly analyzed. This presentation discusses in detail five leading strategies for moving the needle forward while optimizing ratepayer expenditures.
This webinar will examine the pros, cons, and implementation tradeoffs associated with various strategies, including PAYT, collection and containerization variations, bans and mandates, education (including outreach advances integrating social marketing), self-efficacy, and co-benefits . Numbers from pre/post implementations, pilots, and statistical studies to help communities make (real-world) sense of the options will be presented as well.
During this event the presenter will help communities work through the key elements of evaluating programs, including an assessment of the cost of "marginal" tons, so communities can compare and rank strategy alternatives. Tips will be presented from case studies and operational tradeoffs to help communities identify which designs might best suit their situations will be illustrated.
This presentation is based on analyses conducted and published in Resource Recycling and other publications. If you are looking for a webinar that puts costs and benefits front and center, then this is a "can't miss" opportunity.
