The 20 year rollover! Solid waste management in Connecticut is at a turning point as ownership of the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA) facilities enter a transition time. The maturing CRRA contracts with the state’s municipalities will open the door for municipal officials and business owners in Connecticut to decide how they will manage their waste streams. There are implications for the Connecticut DEP’s solid waste management strategy as well as the states recycling strategy.
To understand where waste management is headed in Connecticut, this EBC Connecticut Chapter Conference will assemble waste industry leaders and regulatory officials. These speakers will discuss the changes that are underway and the implications of those changes. Hear from CRRA and Covanta Energy about future energy management from waste facility operations and solid waste processing capacity across the state. The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection will review the state solid waste master plan and their vision. CRCOG will discuss the future of solid waste management options, and we will hear from MSW Consultants about the statewide waste characterization study they are conducting and what that means to the future of solid waste management as we know it today in Connecticut.
