Garbage is what is left over when items cannot be recycled or reused. The industry refers to these leftovers as residual waste and sends it to landfill for disposal.
The City's Green Lane Landfill’s existing permitted capacity will be exhausted by approximately 2025 if current waste diversion initiatives are not increased; expanding diversion programs to meet a target of 70% diversion will increase the site’s life expectancy to approximately 2033.
