Case Studies for Waste Management

Case studies are a great way to learn practical solutions that take into account the many real-life variables we run across. The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) has put together a library of case studies that can give companies an overview of California-specific waste management strategies. You might like to check a few of the following waste management case studies for tips and insights.

This CIWMB link library provides links to case studies from across California Integrated Waste Management Board's website that jurisdictions or local government officials may use to learn about successful diversion programs.
