Environmental Issues

Environmental issues don’t need to impact your operation

Any solid waste operation can be faced with environmental issues. It happens all the time. From dust and odors to windblown litter. From flies and mosquitos to excessive traffic and noise, solid waste operations are often considered guilty until proven innocent.

Every facility is unique, but all share the common challenge; that a specific environmental issue could become a major focal point for unhappy residents and regulators. When that happens, the opportunity for an easy, amicable resolution is unlikely. The reactive response on the table is usually a poor second to what could have been a positive, proactive solution.

That’s where you, as the manager, must take the lead – while that mountain of a problem is still a molehill.

It’s rare that a regulatory citation or public outcry catches a waste facility by surprise. Managers usually know when there is a problem with litter, odor, vectors, traffic, or other aspects of the operation. Question is, will the response be early and proactive, or delayed and reactive?

The answer to that question can mean the difference between success or failure in the courtroom – or in the court of public opinion.
