In addition to ensuring that waste disposal practices are protective of the public and environment, we promote a systematic approach to using/reusing resources productively and sustainably throughout their life cycles, from the point of resource extraction through material recycling or final disposal. Materials management includes managing recyclables, organics, tires, wood, concrete, and other materials traditionally considered trash and landfilled.
