North Carolina Waste Management
In North Carolina, the overall goal is to promote waste reduction and source separation and recycling of marketable/recyclable materials in the solid waste stream. Solid waste crises are occurring in counties and municipalities across the Carolinas and waste audits in Raleigh, Charlotte, Durham, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Wilson showed that increase waste optimization had to become a priority as well as a more efficient effort by waste haulers and trash brokers. These crises are characterized by dwindling landfill space, public opposition to new sites, and crisis-oriented decision-making. Retail waste management outfits such as Lincoln Waste Solutions are making an allied waste effort to get citizens to pay less for your trash.
Waste audits show that recycling reduces the weight and volume, and therefore cost, of waste to be disposed of in landfills. Recycling also conserves energy and natural resources and competitive trash hauler as well as managed trash haulers, are working to reduce the amount of trash and litter going into the landfill. Waste brokers know that recycling is encouraged by the waste management industry and by the 1984 RCRA Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments therefore it is important or all of the managed haulers and trash brokers to maximize their dumpsters and roll-offs as well as repurpose the cardboard from retail waste management. Waste audits prove that recycling benefits local economies because it does not pollute, encourages enterprise development, and reintroduces into the economy materials previously considered without value.
There has been a distinct difference in the economic growth of North Carolina's urban and rural areas. While large cities such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, and others have experienced rapid population and economic growth over the last thirty years, many of the state's small towns have suffered from loss of jobs and population and waste management efforts have suffered as recycling is not as profitable as it is in the bigger cities. Most of North Carolina's small towns historically developed around textile and furniture factories which recycled and repurposed lots of cardboard. As these factories closed and moved to low-wage markets more intense waste audits are needed to make sure that waste brokers are maximizing their efforts to recycle all recyclable materials.
One of the most obvious benefits of recycling and solid waste management is that as managed haulers become more efficient, particularly in working with waste brokers and trash brokers, less waste ends up in landfills and on the ground. Another large benefit is that new products are being created from recovered recyclables mostly from the retail waste management sector.
