Western Area Solid Waste Workshop

Description:

Local governments in the western portion of the NCTCOG region are having to respond to continued growth in both population and economic activity.  This growth provides lots of opportunities, but also poses new challenges for cities and counties. One of these challenges is managing an increasing quantity of solid waste generated by residents and businesses.  Unlike the eastern portion of the NCTCOG region, there is currently minimal infrastructure for dealing with solid waste management in the western portion of the region.  The purpose of the Western Area Solid Waste Workshop is to provide solid waste managers, public works directors and elected officials with the following information:

 

  1. How much waste is generated in the region and what is forecast over the next 30 years
  2. How much disposal capacity is available in the region – focusing on western part of the region (Tarrant/Johnson and everything west)
  3. What is required to secure new landfill capacity – site requirements, design and operational requirements, permit process, construction timing and costs
  4. What is required to secure transfer stations – site requirements, design and operational requirements, permit process, construction timing and costs
  5. What are regional opportunities / models for local governments to work together to address long-term capacity – inter-local agreements, utility districts, general law districts, co-ops and other options

 

The workshop is intended to be approximately 2 hours.  It is hoped that it will lead to a longer term discussion by solid waste managers in the region to identify specific opportunities for regional cooperation.

 

The presenter: Michael Carleton is a senior project manager with the firm Arredondo, Zepeda & Brunz LLC.  Mr. Carleton has over 30 years’ experience working with local governments plan and implement a range of solid waste management programs, including regional solid waste management plans, landfill site selections and permitting, transfer station feasibility studies and permitting and recycling programs.  Some of his projects have included site selection and permitting for the College Station/Bryan Landfill; permitting the North Texas Municipal Water District Transfer Station and the Corpus Christi Transfer Station; and preparing the Kaufman County Solid Waste Management Plan that led to the formation of the Kaufman County Solid Waste Cooperative.  His background is public administration and has spent over 30 years working for engineering firms in the areas of solid waste management and energy policy.
