THROUGH BASELINE ESTABLISHMENT AND TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE ANALYSIS, OUR TEAM IS HELPING NASHVILLE REACH A GOAL OF ZERO WASTE.

Overview:

With the imminent closure of Middle point landfill, Metro Nashville Public Works and Davidson County Solid Waste Region Board are working to create a long-term Solid Waste Master Plan that achieves zero waste. The plan will contain strategies, programs and policies that will allow Metro to reduce waste being generated and disposed in landfills to 10% of the 2017 baseline.


Wilmot’s Role

Wilmot evaluated waste generation, disposal trends, policies, regulations and existing infrastructure to inform the baseline and proposed strategies to ensure that they are effective and actionable. Our team played a key role in assembling key stakeholders for a taskforce that informed the plan. We facilitated discussions at public meetings and acted as a resource for information about the plan for the public.

Wilmot conducted a triple bottom line analysis to identify and quantify the economic, environmental and social impacts of the plan, including but not limited to greenhouse gas emission reductions, energy capture potential, job creation and food donation potential.
