To incentivize all parties to reduce waste through solid waste collection agreements.
Review solid waste collection agreements for ALL vendors handling waste and reusable/recyclable materials. Identify and implement modifications to at least one agreement that incentivizes the reduction of waste to landfill, incineration (WTE) and the environment.
Partner with the service providers to explore tactics for a win/win relationship. Work to reduce contamination to ensure high value materials for resale or engage service provider in other services (training, waste auditing, etc.). The service provider may be able to explore profit sharing models from the sale of recyclables or set contracts to fluctuate based on the volume and/or weight of materials hauled from the site. Recycling, composting, or reuse services can be added or increased as landfill waste is reduced. As the facility reduces the amount of waste hauled from the site, the cost of hauling is decreased. This system incentivizes the generator to reduce waste.

Changes to existing waste collection or bin types at the venue to facilitate increased diversion qualify. Arranging for new service that did not exist at the venue previously or increasing service for the purpose of reducing waste or increasing diversion qualifies.
