A comprehensive overview of national trends, legal issues and policy changes regarding the transformative shift occurring in the solid waste management industry banning commercial organics from landfills, is now accessible by logging on here. The publication describes how eight states with active bans or programs are implementing change, and provides options that exist for project development in this area. Researched and produced by pldw’s municipal infrastructure attorneys, the document also summarizes organics-to-energy and fuels opportunities and provides details of design-build alternative project delivery models, including public-private partnership (P3) arrangements in organics project development.

As states continue to develop programs and build facilities, and as organics technologies advance, so do the complex technical, legal, regulatory, contracting, and permitting issues associated with project development in this area. The attorneys at pldw remain on the leading edge of these emerging solid waste issues and have the knowledge and experience to deal with the complexities of this changing landscape.
