Sustainability and Going Green have been the recent buzz words in the solid waste management field. These two words have an ongoing impact on planning (for either a new project or for refurbishment), performance, people, planet Earth and our quality of life. So the challenge for solid waste professionals is to optimize a balance among environment, natural resources and solid waste management technologies. This paper describes such a sustainability and greening effort through a public–private partnership initiative for an integrated solid waste management for our two Broward County, Florida facilities. Water conservation and use of wastewater, experimental use of waste (sludge) from water treatment plants, continuous quality improvement by monitoring, process optimization and design approaches are some of the on-going areas where efficiencies are being realized.
