[GreenYes] Re: Request for Qualifications- Consultant

Dennis -

I'm curious why the CVSWMD is specifically excluding organic materials
from its review of zero waste diversion activities. Do you already have
a robust zero waste infrastructure diverting all (or darn near to quote
Eric Lombardi) of your organic resources?

Is there likely to be a separate RFQ process for a consultant to assist
with the organic waste stream? Diverting organics would seem to be the
most significant part of achieving zero waste, that has, so far, been
largely overlooked.
