Effective management of municipal solid waste (MSW) is a crucial element in keeping our environment clean and free from contamination. MSW contains thousands of chemicals, including a variety of highly toxic chemicals that are known to contribute to adverse health effects. By regulating the amount of these chemicals that enter into our lakes, streams, and sewers, we can ensure that they do not become a nuisance or an ongoing problem for local residents. In response to this need, a variety of environmental agencies and organizations have been formed in order to implement effective waste bin management systems throughout the country.

A large part of these organizations’ responsibility is to provide technical support to communities in their efforts to improve municipal solid waste management. Through these grants and programs, grantees receive technical assistance in developing cost effective waste management systems, such as trash collection and solid waste composting. By improving the efficiency at which communities manage their municipal solid waste, they can save money, reduce their risk of complying with federal and state pollution laws, and promote better public health. In many cases, the assistance received through these programs allows for better service point of sale systems by reducing the number of transactions and hours that are required to dispose of this unwanted waste.
The ability to reduce the volume of waste that ends up in our landfills and waterways requires coordination and cooperation among various regional and local organizations. By coordinating efforts across this wide distance, we can ensure that service centers and service points of sales are effectively used to collect and dispose of MSW. An integrated waste management system can include onsite solid waste collection, processing, and disposal. It can also involve mobile waste collection and transportation services for large community projects. Another innovative service offered by these grantmaking organizations is the implementation of remote sensing of solid waste. Through this process, advanced gis based technologies are utilized to monitor waste locations.
