Zero Waste Initiative

Striving toward zero waste can have an unprecedented impact on the economy in Prince George’s County. Achieving zero waste entails encouraging the County, its residents, businesses, and visitors to re-evaluate what is considered waste. The value of recyclable paper and containers disposed of at the Brown Station Road Sanitary Road Landfill is estimated to be over $9.7 million annually. Recovering these materials as well as compostable and divertible materials from the waste stream and placing them back into the economy will have a significant impact on local revenue, job creation, and business expansion.
