Regional Solid Waste Board –

BURNT was at the annual (yes, that’s ONCE a year) meeting of the Regional Solid Waste Board. BURNT handed out a flyer requesting changes be made to the policies governing this board including:

  1. minimum of four meetings a year with a quorum (instead of one);
  2. augment existing annual Report to evaluate Nashville landfills and compost facilities based on truck traffic, amount of waste land filled or composted, and notify neighborhood groups for comments;
  3. report on plans to reduce out of county land filling through specific compost and recycling projects and specific statements on food waste and construction waste;
  4. allow citizens and neighborhoods to add comments to legislation
    and Annual Report
