The City of Fort Worth is undertaking one of the largest green initiatives yet with the development of a comprehensive solid waste management plan.
The plan will serve as a blueprint for how waste is handled and managed in Cowtown for the next 20 years. The previous plan -- created in 1995 -- addressed a number of issues, including ensuring adequate landfill space. This time around, the city is looking to involve all residents of Fort Worth to answer tougher questions:
• What is waste, and what part of waste is a resource?
• Which resources can we recapture for value, and what’s the best way to do that?
• What behaviors are Fort Worth residents and businesses willing to adopt to make a greener city?
• Evaluate and address all waste produced within the City not just the residential waste.
