Keynote Address: Mountains of Trash and Treasures!
Heidi Sanborn speaks passionately about solid waste issues and is one of the country’s experts on Landfill Economics. As the keynote speaker, Heidi will address some of the issues facing Montana in the future. Some Montana communities are already shipping solid waste long distances by truck or rail for burial in regional landfills. How do communities anticipate financial impacts of closing or expanding landfills? What are the impacts to sparsely populated areas? Does product stewardship benefit local solid waste planning? Will increased recycling and diversion from landfills really benefit Montana communities?
