Waste Management Series Part 3: The Burden of Collection and Disposal


10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


CCM and the Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority are excited to partner for a six part series, Waste Management and Recycling in Connecticut. 

This series will provide an education on the basics of what’s currently happening to Connecticut's waste and recycling, how it is managed, where it is going, and what capacity currently is available. 

These trainings will serve as a tool to help Connecticut leaders begin to look towards the future of creating a sustainable waste management system.


Per CT Sec. 22a-220, each municipal authority shall make provisions for the safe and sanitary disposal of all solid wastes.

With rising disposal cost and the possible limitation of disposal outlets what should municipalities do to secure contracts in the future? Regionalize? Franchise Services? Build municipal facilities?  What’s the answer?  

Tune into the third installment of CCM and HRRA's Waste Management and Recycling series to hear from industry experts as they discuss possible solutions to these questions.
