Transcript of 2013-2017 FIVE YEAR SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR LOUISVILLE METRO KY

LOUISVILLE/JEFFERSON COUNTY METRO GOVERNMENT
SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
FIVE YEAR SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN UPDATE 2013-2017

IN 1987 THE
COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY ADOPTED REGULATIONS THAT REQUIRED COUNTIES TO PLAN FOR SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
SUMMARY

WEAKNESSES
ACTION PLANS

PRESENTATION
FOCUS

CURRENT STATE
IN OCTOBER 2012, THE DISTRICT SUBMITTED THE SIXTH SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN UPDATE FOR JEFFERSON COUNTY (2013-2017) TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY


ESTABLISHED LOCAL AUTHORITY FOR ENFORCEMENT OF SOLID WASTE REGULATIONS
REQUIRED PROGRAMS TO IDENTIFY AND REDUCE ILLEGAL OPEN DUMPS
REQUIRED EACH COUNTY PLAN FOR
ADEQUATE DISPOSAL SPACE
IT ALSO REQUIRED EACH COUNTY TO IMPLEMENT STRATEGIES AND PROGRAMS TO PROMOTE WASTE REDUCTION, REUSE, AND RECYCLE
TO COMPLY WITH THE NEW LAW, JEFFERSON COUNTY FISCAL COURT
CREATED WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS THE LOUISVILLE/JEFFERSON COUNTY METRO GOVERNMENT WASTE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
THE PLAN IS INTENDED AS A NEW BEGINNING TO THE COUNTIES APPROACH TO SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT WHERE TRADITIONALLY WASTE IS LANDFILLED TO ONE OF RESOURCE RECOVERY
THE COLLECTION SYSTEM

MUNICIPAL AREAS


ORGANIZED
COLLECTION AREAS


OPEN COLLECTION AREAS


MULTIPLE WASTE HAULERS SERVICING THE SAME AREA IN OPEN SECTIONS
RECYCLING AND YARD WASTE PARTICIPATION IS LOW

DUE TO LACK OF AN EFFECTIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM,
THERE IS A PERCEPTION OF INEQUALITY AMONG MANY RESIDENTS IN THE SUBURBAN AREA. MANY HAVE SUGGESTED THEY WOULD LIKE SERVICES BUT BELIEVE THEY SHOULD HAVE “FREE” COLLECTION LIKE THE CITY

YARD WASTE CONTAMINATION DUE TO PLASTIC BAGS


WEAKNESSES
READILY AVAILABLE NUMBERS OF WASTE HAULERS

AVAILABILITY CREATES COMPETITION

MERGER 2.0 FOUND MAJORITY WERE HIGHLY SATISFIED

THE SYSTEM IS MANDATORY
THE EXISTING COLLECTION SYSTEM

STRENGTHS
CURRENT SYSTEM PARTICIPATION RATES

POSSIBLE IDEAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
ACTION PLAN

CURRENTLY BEING REVIEWED BY STAFF AND ADVISORY COMMITTEE
"FRANCHISING"
Where sections of the county are banded together and placed out to bid to negotiate a better price

"PAY AS YOU THROW"
WHERE CUSTOMERS PAY BASED ON HOW MUCH GARBAGE THEY GENERATE.

YARD WASTE AND RECYCLING ARE PROVIDED AS PART OF THE GARBAGE SERVICE.

THE MORE A CUSTOMER RECYCLES AND COMPOST THE LESS GARBAGE THEY GENERATE

WHERE DOES OUR WASTE GO?

STRENGTHS




THIS IS BASED ON 2011 GENERATION RATES AND DOES NOT ACCOUNT FOR INCREASES IN POPULATION OR WASTE SHIPPED IN FROM OTHER AREAS

WHERE WE ARE AS A COMMUNITY

“Currently, the amount of recyclables collected in our community are limited by a lack of education on what can be recycled, a lack of concern about the importance of recycling, and a lack of convenience for citizens to separate recyclable materials from landfill-bound waste. In short, the imperfections of the human race and our society limit the amount of recyclable material that is currently collected".

"Recent technology advancements in material processing are reducing the necessity for humans to separate recyclables from garbage and provide the opportunity to capture 100% of recyclable material before it ends up in the landfill. Given the community-wide benefits of recycling, there is value in attracting these new facilities to our region.”

“The traditional breakeven point for a private recycling industry is based on the point where the value of the material equals the processing cost to recover it.
However, the bottom line should also take into account long-term benefits to the community, such as reducing the need for future landfills, reducing the need to extract virgin and non-renewable resources, and maintaining a positive image for the community. Given these additional benefits, there is value in incentivizing recycling so that more recyclable materials can be recovered beyond the traditional breakeven point.”

LOUISVILLE METRO IS IN A GOOD SITUATION UNLIKE MANY COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THERE ARE ALSO NO PLANS PENDING FOR INCREASING THE SERVICE AREA.

HOWEVER, TIMES ARE CHANGING FAST
ARE FINDING WAYS TO RE-INVENT THEMSELVES




DISPOSAL ACTION PLAN

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE BEFORE WE RUN OUT OF SPACE FOR OUR GARBAGE?

CURRENTLY THE OUTER LOOP LANDFILL ACCEPTS WASTE FROM (66) COUNTIES IN KENTUCKY AND (8) IN INDIANA. IN ADDITION TO REGULAR WASTE FROM THOSE COUNTIES CERTAIN “SPECIAL” WASTE ARE ACCEPTED FROM OTHER KENTUCKY, INDIANA, WEST VIRGINIA, AND TENNESSEE LOCATIONS

WHILE CURRENT LEVELS OF INCOMING WASTE ARE SMALL, AS OTHER LANDFILLS BECOME FULL OTHER COUNTIES OR STATES MAY LOOK AT OUR AREA AS A PLACE FOR THEIR WASTE.

THEREFORE, AS PART OF HOSTING A LANDFILL WITHIN OUR COUNTY, THE WASTE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT BOARD HAS ESTABLISHED A COMMUNITY “HOST AGREEMENT”


WHO USES THE OUTER LOOP LANDFILL?


CURRENT LANDFILL PERMITTED
AIR SPACE KENTUCKY
44.6 YEARS (2011)


OUTER LOOP LANDFILL 52.2
VALLEY VIEW LANDFILL 28.9
CLARK FLOYD LANDFILL (IN)
MEDORA LANDFILL (IN)


DISPOSAL CAPACITY

USES DATA FROM RECYCLING FACILITIES FOR MAIN STREAM MATERIALS AND INCLUDES WHAT IS COLLECTED BUT ALSO WHAT IS DROPPED OFF BY RESIDENTIAL AND BUSINESS
THIS IS THE LONGEST RUNNING RATE BEING CALCULATED

USES DATA SUBMITTED BY LICENSED COLLECTORS OF THE RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL WASTE STREAMS AND IS REFLECTIVE OF THE EFFORTS TO RECYCLE BOTH AT HOME AND AT WORK

LOUISVILLE METRO COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL CURBSIDE DIVERSION RATE

METRO HOMEOWNERS AND BUSINESSES (OUTSIDE THE USD) DO NOT RECYCLE DUE TO THE COST FOR THE SERVICE

EASY ACCESS AND SIGNIFICANT CAPACITY FOR DISPOSAL THROUGH LANDFILLING

RECYCLING PROGRAMS FOR RESIDENTIAL APARTMENT BUILDINGS HAVING NINE OR MORE UNITS ARE NOT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE MUNICIPAL COLLECTION SYSTEM.


ACCESS TO CURBSIDE COLLECTION
13 UNSTAFFED CENTERS ACCEPT FIBER PRODUCTS AND (WHAT TYPE OF??) CONTAINERS
5 STAFFED CENTERS ACCEPT THE SAME MATERIALS AS THE UNSTAFFED CENTERS, INCLUDING USED MOTOR OIL, ANTI-FREEZE, AND BATTERIES
DROP OFF ELECTRONICS, INCLUDING TELEVISIONS, FREE OF CHARGE

RECYCLING AND YARD WASTE
PARTICIPATION IS LOW DUE TO LACK OF AN EFFECTIVE EDUCTION PROGRAM.

LACK OF FUNDING TO PROVIDE THE NUMBER AND SIZE OF CONTAINERS NEEDED FOR RECYCLING

SMALL BINS CURRENTLY USED FOR RECYCLING LACK CAPACITY NOR A LID TO PREVENT ITEMS FROM GETTING WET OR FROM BLOWING THE CONTENTS INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD

THERE IS A FALSE PERCEPTION BY MANY IN THE SUBURBAN AREAS THAT RESIDENTS IN THE URBAN SERVICES DISTRICT GET COLLECTION SERVICES FOR "FREE". THIS CAUSES MANY PEOPLE TO REFUSE TO EVEN CONSIDER ADDING RECYCLING UNLESS THEY ARE GIVEN THE SAME CONSIDERATION

SWMS
142,495 6.9%

OVERALL RECYCLING RATE

"ALL IN ONE"

FIVE PRIVATE WASTE HAULERS
AND
TWO MUNICIPAL WASTE HAULERS

FORTY WASTE HAULERS THAT COLLECT NON RESIDENTIAL, CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION DEBRIS, AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE
TRANSFER
STATIONS
GARBAGE TRUCKS BRING LOADS TO THIS TYPE OF LOCATION TO BE TRANSFERRED INTO LARGER TRUCKS BEFORE IT GOES TO A LANDFILL

THIS IS DONE FOR EFFICIENCY WHEN THE LANDFILL IS FAR AWAY
OUTER LOOP RECYCLING and DISPOSAL FACILITY

JACKSON COUNTY
INDIANA
88,711 TONS
532,297 TONS
BORDEN
INDIANA
57,120 TONS
TRIMBLE COUNTY KENTUCKY
196,012 TONS
LANDFILL GAS IS CAPTURED AND USED TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY
HOWEVER, EVEN THE BEST LANDFILL GAS SYSTEM DOES
NOT CAPTURE ALL THE GREEN
HOUSE GASES EMITTED FROM DECOMPOSITION
MANY NEW LANDFILLS PROJECTS ARE UNDERWAY AROUND THE WORLD




THE LANDFILL GAS FROM THE OUTER LOOP LANDFILL IS USED BY GENERAL ELECTRIC
FUELING SOLID WASTE TRUCKS TO RUN ON COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS
LANDFILL MINING
THE WAY WE VIEW LANDFILLS IS CHANGING FROM ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD TO BENEFICIAL USE
LANDFILL GAS IS USED TO AS BOILER FUEL BY NEARBY INDUSTRY
SEVERAL PROJECTS ARE UNDERWAY AROUND THE WORLD TO RECOVER RECYCLABLES, MATERIAL FOR RDF, AND COVER MATERIALS
FUNDED THROUGH HIGHER TAXES AND PROVIDED BY EMPLOYEES OF THE MUNICIPALITY
AREAS WHERE SMALL CITIES OR ORGANIZATIONS GROUP TOGETHER TO NEGOTIATE A BETTER RATE
EACH PERSON MUST CONTRACT DIRECTLY WITH A PRIVATE WASTE HAULER
LOUISVILLE METRO
GENERATED 2,056,063 TONS
OF MATERIALS IN 2012
WAS CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION MATERIALS, INDUSTRIAL WASTE, AND CONTAMINATED SOIL

RESIDENTIAL / COMMERCIAL GARBAGE AND YARD WASTE
874,140 TONS
OF MSW WAS LANDFILLED


GUARANTEES CAPACITY FOR JEFFERSON COUNTY'S WASTE IN THE AMOUNT OF 13,500,000 TONS FOR EACH 10-YEAR PERIOD BEGINNING APRIL 4, 1994, AND EXTENDING THROUGH APRIL 3, 2014, AND RENEWABLE FOR ANOTHER 20-YEAR PERIOD AT THE DISTRICT’S OPTION.

THIS AGREEMENT ALSO DEFINES THE “SERVICE AREA" FROM WHICH WASTE MANAGEMENT'S OUTER LOOP LANDFILL MAY ACCEPT WASTE.

WASTE MANAGEMENT MAY PETITION THE DISTRICT BOARD TO ADD COUNTIES TO THE SERVICE AREA BUT THE BOARD RETAINS THE RIGHT TO GRANT OR DENY ANY ADDITIONS TO THE SERVICE AREA. SINCE THE HOST AGREEMENT IS A LEGAL CONTRACT, ANY AMENDMENTS TO THE AGREEMENT REQUIRE A PUBLIC HEARING AND BOARD ACTION.

THE "HOST" AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE LOUISVILLE/JEFFERSON COUNTY METRO GOVERNMENT WASTE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT AND WASTE MANAGEMENT OF KENTUCKY
THE DISPOSAL SYSTEM
WEAKNESSES
Easy access and significant capacity do not encourage a sense of urgency among local residents and businesses to reduce waste disposal and increase recycling and composting practices.
Metro currently hosts a state-of-the-art permitted landfill with significant capacity and has easy access to several other permitted landfills.


LOUISVILLE METRO COUNCIL SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE PRESENTATION AUGUST 8, 2013
THE RECYCLING
SYSTEM
LOUISVILLE METRO DIVERTED 52.9% OF THE MATERIALS IT GENERATED THROUGH RECYCLING, COMPOSTING, OR BENEFICIAL USE
1,088,187 TONS
THE COMMUNITIES GOAL IS 90% BY 2042
HOW DO WE KNOW HOW WE ARE DOING IN HANDLING OUR WASTE?

USES ONLY DATA FROM CURBSIDE AND DUMPSTER COLLECTORS


USES DATA FROM RECYCLING FACILITIES FOR MAIN STREAM MATERIALS AND INCLUDES WHAT IS COLLECTED BUT ALSO WHAT IS DROPPED OFF BY RESIDENTIAL AND BUSINESS ENTITIES


THIS IS THE SAME MEASUREMENT AS THE “LOUISVILLE METRO DIVERSION RATE” PLUS ADDS THE CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION WASTE, COMPOSTING, BENEFICIALLY USED WASTE, AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE
THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO MEASURE OUR PERFORMANCE BUT FOR THIS PRESENTATION WE WILL FOCUS ON THREE
LOUISVILLE METRO DIVERSION RATE
LOUISVILLE METRO RECYCLING RATE
COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL CURBSIDE DIVERSION RATE
LOUISVILLE METRO DIVERSION RATE
WEAKNESS
STRENGTHS
METRO PROVIDES RESIDENTS WITH 12 STRATEGICALLY PLACED UNSTAFFED CENTERS TO DROP OFF RECYCLABLE CONTAINERS, PAPER, AND CARDBOARD

THE DISTRICT PROVIDES 4 STAFFED CENTERS THT RESIDENTS CAN DROP OFF RECYCLABLE CONTAINERS, PAPER, CARDBOARD, USED MOTOR OIL, USED ANTI-FREEZE, USED COOKING OIL, AND BATTERIES

THE DISTRICT ALSO PROVIDES A DROP OFF LOCATION FOR HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS MATERIALS ON WEDNESDAY'S AND SATURDAYS FROM 9 AM TO 3 PM
WHAT IS RECYCLED
THERE ARE THREE MAIN CATEGORIES OF MATERIALS
HOUSEHOLD GOODS AND WASTE
CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION MATERIALS
INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS
ACTION PLAN
THE ACTION PLANS LISTED WITHIN THE PLAN WILL BE PRESENTED ON AUGUST 22, 2012 IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE MAYORS INNOVATION DELIVERY TEAM ON RECYCLING...
THE BEGINNING
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
THE DISTRICT, WHICH WAS GIVEN ALL THE POWERS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT, QUICKLY STARTED PLANNING TO MEET THE CHALLENGES SET FORTH BY THE COMMONWEALTH AND IN 1992 PRESENTED THE FIRST UPDATE TO THE 1987 PLAN
THIS PRESENTATION INCLUDES INFORMATION NOT CONTAINED IN THE PLAN. UPDATED INFORMATION GATHERED BY STAFF, THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE, THE SOLID WASTE 109 BOARD AND THE INNOVATION DELIVERY TEAM ON RECYCLING HAVE BEEN INCLUDED
ADDITIONAL WEAKNESSES
OTHER ACTION PLANS BY CHAPTER
ALL IN ONE SYSTEM WHERE EVERYTHING GOES TO THE SAME PROCESSING FACILITY.

SINGLE COLLECTION
VEHICLE

ADDITIONAL
PROCESSING
FACILITIES
RESIDENTS PLACE ALL DRY WASTE IN ONE CONTAINER AND ALL WET IN THE OTHER. WET INCLUDES YARD WASTE.

ONLY TWO COLLECTIONS ARE NEEDED INSTEAD OF THREE

"WET-DRY"
WET/DRY COLLECTION NOTES
PRO: ALL WASTE IS PROCESSED FOR RECOVERY OR REUSE. IT IS A SIMPLE CONCEPT. IT REQUIRES FEWER COLLECTION TRUCKS AS EVERYTHING IS PICKED UP IN TWO PASSES RESULTING IN LESS GHG EMISSIONS, LESS NOISE, MUCH LARGER DIVERSION. THIS SYTEM CAN BE A HUGE COST REDUCTION FOR CERTAIN BUSINESSES

CON: CURRENT PROCESSING CAPACITY IS NOT ADEQUATE-NEW FACILITIES (PUBLIC OR PRIVATE), PROBLEM MATERIALS SUCH AS DIAPERS AND HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS MATERIALS.

ACTION PLAN: POTENTIAL FOR PROJECTS TO GET OFF THE GROUND SOON.

FRANCHISING NOTES
PRO: REDUCED EMISSIONS, FEWER COLLECTION VEHICLES DRIVING THROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD, NOISE REDUCTION, POTENTIAL COST SAVINGS

CON: SMALL HAULERS FIND IT HARD TO COMPETE, CITIZEN LOOSES CHOICE ON HAULER

ACTION: SOME WORK HAS BEEN DONE IN PREVIOUS ACTION ON THE ISSUE. SOME DISCUSSION HAS TAKEN PLACE AND SOME INITIAL SUPPORT HAS BEEN OBTAINED FROM SOME STAKEHOLDERS.

FINANCIAL MECHANISM
ORGANIZED COLLECTION
IN THIS MAP A SECTION OF TOWN IS SPLIT INTO FOUR COLLECTION ROUTES. EACH ROUTE IS MAXIMIZED FOR ONE COLLECTION VEHICLE TO PICK ALL THE CUSTOMERS. THIS RESULTS IN A SHORTER DISTANCE BETWEEN STOPS AND FEWER MILES TRAVELED TO COMPLETE THE SECTION OF TOWN OVERALL.

IN AN
UN-ORGANIZED
COLLECTION SYSTEM EACH OF THE FOUR COLLECTION TRUCKS WOULD NEED TO TRAVEL THE ENTIRE AREA TO SERVICE CUSTOMERS. THE RESULT IS MANY MORE MILES TRAVELED TO COMPLETE THE SECTION OF TOWN.

DIVERSION NUMBERS
THE DIVERSION NUMBERS CONTAINED INTHIS PRESENTATION ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

THE TRACKING AND DOCUMENTING THE MOVEMENT OF DIVERTED MATERIAL IS DIFFICULT.

COMMODITIES ARE BOUGHT AND SOLD FROM GENERATORS TO PROCESSORS TO END USERS BOTH IN AND OUT OF LOUISVILLE METRO.

WE BELIEVE THESE NUMBERS ARE ACCURATE HOWEVER ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE WHEN WE FIND DOUBLE COUNTING OF MATERIALS, UNLICENSED FACILITIES THAT ARE NOT REPORTING, AND GENERATORS THAT SHIP DIRECTLY OUT OF TOWN.
