Municipal Solid Waste Management Survey

Municipalities play a central role in waste management. How waste is managed can benefit or harm the local environment, economy, and society. Delta Institute is analyzing economic and environmental impacts of waste management practices to identify opportunities for cost-savings and improved environmental outcomes. To conduct our analysis, we need your help and knowledge of local waste management.

Survey participants will receive a high-level snapshot and detailed analysis of their community's waste management costs, environmental impacts, and reduction opportunities.

The survey should be taken by someone with specific knowledge of how waste is managed in your community.

Information provided will be published in aggregate. Your information and analysis will only be provided to you, and not disclosed publicly.

Please feel free to contact Brittany Gifford at the Delta Institute, at: bgifford@delta-institute.org; or (312) 554-0900 ext. 27 with questions or comments.

We are grateful for your time and participation, and appreciate your contribution to enhancing sustainability in the Chicago area. Thanks again,

Eve Pytel, Director
Delta Institute
