I have a sincere desire to learn all aspects of the core services the county government provides. So of course, I went on a tour of the waste management process. Surprisingly, I learned our trash ends up in many different places. Some of the waste goes directly to the burn plant to be used to create steam which is then sold to Hill Air Force Base. Yard wastes goes into a mulching and reuse process to create great compost which is used in our gardens. Many other items are recycled. All of this is done to extend the life of the landfill and reuse as much as possible. It was an informative field trip where I learned how trash can be used as an asset. I look forward to learning more about Davis County as I work to be a your commissioner.
