CFP Action Plan - Waste
Reduce park operations'
waste emissions to 10
percent below 2007
levels by 2020.
Both recycling and composting reduce the amount of waste that is landfilled and represent significant potential GHG emission reductions. For example, the US EPA estimates that yard trimmings and food scraps accounted for as much as 25 percent of MSW produced in 2008.
