Despite the roll-back on solid waste planning requirements in some southeastern states, proactive local governments here continue to plan. When they do, they seek the assistance of A. Goldsmith Resources. Communities as diverse as Fulton County (GA), Orange County (NC), Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority (GA), and the Columbus Consolidated Government  (GA) retained A. Goldsmith Resources to update goals, strategies and action plans to reduce and manage solid waste. The biggest benefit? Since decision makers provide input and ultimately approve these Plan, they support staff when it is time to appropriate funds and move ahead with activities.

Abby Goldsmith celebrates over 25 years of partnership with several clients. A. Goldsmith Resources recently prepared Solid Waste Management Plan update for the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Management Authority. Since 1991, Abby has had the pleasure of assisting Dalton and Whitfield County create the Authority, develop the state's first household Hazardous Waste facility, and construct a unique MRF targeting the significant amount of carpet received at its landfill. It is partners (and progress) like this that makes work worthwhile.     

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.

A Goldsmith Resources works with clients to set measurable goals for solid waste reduction and management and to formulate a detailed plan to achieve them.
