Resource Lifecycle

ecoPreserve is a proven leader in Solid Waste Management and Resource Lifecyle solutions.

We help large organizations and municipalities improve operations, reduce costs, and achieve Zero Waste through data-driven, efficiency-focused planning, program development and implementation.

Managing waste is dirty work, but a critical part of everyday life. As landfills increase and international bans on recycling tighten, the need for holistic waste management has become critical. Resource Lifecycle Management is a comprehensive set of practices that analyzes the generation, collection, processing, treatment, disposal of waste. Understanding these principles helps us to make decisions that protect our environment.

The Path to Zero Waste

Orlando International Airport

Airports are complex environments from a waste management standpoint because of varied tenant activities (airlines, food services, retail, rental car) and diverse waste composition.

The Sustainability Management Plan for Orlando International Airport sets a goal of 50% waste diversion from landfill by 2020. To address this, the airport contracted ecoPreserve to develop and implement a comprehensive waste roadmap. The program has increased waste diversion from 12% to 24%. ecoPreserve was also contracted to oversee C&D waste on the Airport expansion efforts. To date, those have resulted in a 97% diversion rate in Construction & Demolition waste.

Diving Deep into Waste Management

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

At Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Airport, ecoPreserve analyzed a waste management system the size of Manhattan.  Preliminary assessment involved material flow mapping, stakeholder interviews, and waste composition studies.

In their report, ecoPreserve documented process improvements, strategic partnerships, contract modifications, and equipment purchase requirements. Those and other long and short-term recommendations address DFW’s waste diversion goal of Zero Waste by 2050.

Creating the Design for the Future

Florida Hospital Networks

Infrastructure needs and medical regulations bring unique challenges to managing hospital waste. To address those challenges, ecoPreserve is developing a sustainable Design Guidelines Manual (DGM) for the Florida Hospital Network. The manual focuses on waste infrastructure design, ensuring that future hospital development includes adequate space for waste management needs.
