August 21, 2018 - Trash Doesn't Just Disappear
A landfill is a place where everyone knows it's there, but you don't know what it is or what they do. Just because our trash goes to the landfill, doesn't mean it disappears; work has to be done with those materials. Reduce, reuse and recycle materials is at the heart of the work the City of Boise undertakes to manage the materials generated in our community. We believe in innovation and continual evaluation to address our materials management issues. On August 21, the ambassadors learned all about materials management within the landfill and all the work that goes into it.
