Goal Plan and act toward zero waste in the region.
Targets No net increase in total landfill waste from 2010. This will require a:
15% reduction in per capita landfill waste by 2020
32% reduction in per capita landfill waste by 2035
Outlook Outlook: Stormy, concerns for the future. Solid waste collected per person is above the levels needed to reach the region's 2020 and 2035 targets. Waste collected on a per capita basis has increased from a low of 1,140 pounds per person in 2012 to 1,409 pounds per person in 2019.
