Despite the weakening of solid waste planning requirements in Georgia, proactive local governments continue to update their solid waste and material management plans as their current plans expire with the assistance of A. Goldsmith Resources. Georgia communities as diverse as Fulton County, Macon-Bibb County, Camden County, and the cities of Kingsland, St. Marys, and Woodbine have updated their goals and strategies for reducing and managing solid waste and identified the programs, policies, facilities, and resources needed to achieve them. The biggest benefit of the planning process? Since elected officials adopt the final plan, they take the opportunity to review, provide input and ultimately support the activities once the plan is adopted. 

We assess current and potential strategies, programs and facilities, drawing on decades of experience from across the country to recommend ways to attain client goals.

We help put the plan into action - developing policy, identifying funding sources, procuring services and facilities, and garnering support from elected officials and the public.

A Goldsmith Resources monitors progress toward goals and measures environmental and financial performance over time and against selected benchmarks.
