Transcript of Broward County Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling 2011

Broward County
Solid Waste Disposal
and Recycling Every Year Florida Counties are required to report data on their waste. Counties report the tonnage of 19 types of waste Paper Waste Aluminum Cans Plastic Bottles Food Waste Counties also report how waste is processed. Landfilled Combusted Recycled In 2008, Florida Statute 403.7032 established a
75% recycling goal by the year 2020. 75% In 2011, the reported GROSS tonnage to State for Broward County waste was: 38% 38% 24% Landfilled combustor ash tonnage
is subtracted from MSW combustion input However, the Net tonnage is adjusted per Florida State law Recycled Landfilled Combusted Broward County Net Tonnage Recycled 26% Combusted 31% Landfilled 43% They also report their recycled rate 2011 Waste Recycled vs. Unrecycled Composition of Broward County Waste in 2011 C & D Debris 18% Yard Waste 12% Corrugated Paper 9% Other Plastics 5% Other Paper 8% Textiles 3% Non-ferrous metals 3% White Goods 1% Ferrous Metals 10% Office Paper 4% Steel Cans 2% Plastic Bottles 1% Aluminum Cans 1% Glass 3% Newspaper 5% Tires 1% Miscellaneous 9% Food 6% Yard Waste and Construction & Demolition Debris 2 largest segments of Broward waste Many recoverable materials are not being recycled! Yard Trash 12% Newspaper 58% Glass 8% Aluminum Cans 8% Plastic Bottles 20% Steel Cans 4% Corrugated Paper 45% Office Paper 10% Other Plastics 3% Ferrous Metals 42% White Goods 2% Non-Ferrous Metals 56% Other Paper 7% Textiles 1% C&D Debris 58% Food 0% Miscellaneous 2% Tires 0% County Total 26% State of Florida recycling guidance For a material to count towards the county recycling goal, it must be a material that would be municipal solid waste that would allow it to be recycled many times. As with any Law, there are exceptions. Here are a few: Total Input of Broward Municipal Solid Waste Recycled
23% Combusted
38% Landfilled
28% q Recycled Ash 1% Landfilled Ash 10% "Each county shall implement a recyclable materials recycling program that shall have a goal of recycling recyclable solid waste" If, by January 1 of 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, or 2021, any county, has not reached the recycling goals 1 ton recycled credit = 1 MWhr of electricity produced by combustion or landfill gas Yard Trash (Choose 1 per Landfill) Yard trash disposed in a Class I landfill producing landfill gas 1 ton recycled credit = 1 ton of yard waste used as landfill cover 1 ton recycled credit = 1 ton of process fuel Yard trash MWhr produced x (Yard trash/County waste) 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Recycled Landfilled Combusted Broward County MSW Management 1997-2011 Etc... Recycling rates have plateued for over a decade. But it's not quite that simple... FDEP may direct the county to develop a
plan to expand recycling programs 40% 50% 60% 70% 75% In 2012, many Broward Cities instituted Single Stream Recycling This increases recovered household recycleable materials However, they are a small protion of the total waste stream 3% - 4% To increase recycling percentages Counties must capture the low hanging fruit C&D, Yard Waste, Bulk trash C&D, Yard Waste, Bulk trash May be recycled at much higher rates Current Recycling Rates C&D
58% Yard Waste
12% Bulk Trash
25% Possible Recycling Rates C&D
93% Yard Waste
98% Bulk Trash
85% 2011 Municipal Solid Waste Management Report to Florida Department of Environmental Protection Dropped 2%
in 2011 2011 Combustion recycling credit per Florida = in the absence of recycling, and recycled in a way It can get rather complicated... 61% of Combustion input tonnage 38% Broward Combustion input = Both the Landfill and Combustion Waste Streams may be Recycled by 40% with newer technoloogies 40% of 38% Combustion = 15% Recycled + 40% of 38% Landfilled = 15% Recycled 30% Recycled 23% Recycling Credit Potential MSW Recycling Rates for Landfilled and Combusted = 2011 Credited Recycling Rate for Combusted MSW = 23% 30% Reported Broward Waste by Generator Type Commercial Residential
Single Family Residential
Multi-Family 60% 31% 9% Residential
Single Family Residential
Multi-Family Commercial County
Totals 2011 Waste Recycled vs. Unrecycled 37% 63% 10% 90% 11% 89% 26% 74% More Commercial Waste may be recycled C&D Debris = 18% of County Waste Lets Break It Down! C&D Debris Recycled at 58% Additional programs need to be considered for the Growing Multi-Family Market. Cities may increase Multi-Family recycling through
Collection Contracts
Hauler Licensing Rates may be increased to 93% Some Multi-Family waste is mixed and reported as Commercial 45% of Broward Homes are considered Multi-Famimly (Census) So what have we learned? Current waste disposal methods are not achieving desired recycling rates, So what can we do about it? Change what we are doing Current system not striving for innovoation to achieve state goals. How? By Recycling More! Adjusted result of subtracting ash tonnage from combusted An Increase of C&D to 93% and Yard Waste to 98% would Increase County Recycling Rates by 16% Status quo is not getting us there To achieve higher recycling and make our community
more sustainable we must make changes. Broward County needs leadership on recycling. ARE YOU IN? + + = Combustion created ash equivalent to 26% of input in 2011. This toxic byproduct must be landfilled
