Public-Private Partnership drives local sustainability
"This is the beginning of a new era in how we deal with waste in Prince William county. ... We are going to be reducing the amount of waste that enters of our landfill, ... increasing the amount of organic materials that are available for farming or for industrial uses or for just simple yard care, and we’re going to become a more green community because of that.”
