Raleigh, NC (August 13, 2012) – As part of efforts towards a more sustainable society, primary focus has centered on key areas of community infrastructure such as food, water, energy and managing wastes. While most of these areas of infrastructure acquire data to actively control and track these resources, managing solid waste has historically suffered from a lag in the availability of data, or a lack of data altogether. While in some cases data is being used from an operations standpoint, information such as the amount of waste generated or recycled, which guide operations, goal setting and policymaking, can take a year or more to become available.
