Greening Local Government

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Offices of Pollution Prevention and Recycling participated in the Connecticut Council of Municipalities (CCM) annual convention on October 9, 2003, in Cromwell, CT. The theme of the convention was "Local Governments: New Challenges, New Solutions." The event attracted hundreds of municipal officials, students, and exhibitors. The DEP display showcased two cost-saving programs for municipalities: Implementing Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) (unit pricing for solid waste management) and Best Management Practices for Vehicle Maintenance and Repair (highlighting the Pit Stops Fact Sheets). DEP staff was available throughout the day long event to talk to municipal officials about these programs. There was significant interest in the Pit Stops fact sheets. However, although officials think that PAYT makes sense, few in the state are willing to commit to it because of public resistance.
