Tennessee Waste Management

According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2011 Tennessee's gross state trash management product was $2.46 billion, making Tennessee the 18th largest recycling economy in the nation. In 2011, the per capita waste spend was $28,641 per retail waste management location which caused Tennessee to be ranked 36th in the nation. Waste Solutions Magazine pointed out that 91% of the businesses in Memphis, Knoxville, Nashville, Crossville, Clarksville and Chattanooga had a per national business waste spend of $31,472. In 2011, the median waste outsourcing dumpster cost was $38,550, 41st in the nation, and 87% of the waste brokers and trash broker participated.

Major outputs for the state include textiles, cotton, cattle, and electrical power, all of whom use competitive trash haulers. Tennessee has over 82,000 farms, roughly 59 percent of which compost or utilize a waste outsourcing service. Major corporations with sustainability policies and retail waste management policies that are headquartered in Tennessee include FedEx Corporation, AutoZone Incorporated and International Paper, all based in Memphis; Pilot Corporation and Regal Entertainment Group, based in Knoxville; Eastman Chemical Company, based in Kingsport, the North American headquarters of Nissan, based in Franklin; and the head-quarters of Caterpillar Financial (the finance division of the well known mining company Caterpillar) based in Nashville. Tennessee is also the location of the Volkswagen Chattanooga Assembly Plant and a 1.2 Billion dollar solid waste management production facility by Lincoln Waste Solutions in Clarksville. Tennessee hopes to use waste brokers and trash brokers to achieve a zero landfill dependency.

The Tennessee goal is to assist with the overall reduction of waste disposal by managed haulers at landfills across the nation. Tennessee strives to make transporting salvage products cheaper than disposal and collection fees. As well as waste optimize the entire retail waste management chain with the assistance of local waste brokers and trash brokers.

One of the most obvious benefits of recycling and solid waste management is that as managed haulers become more efficient, particularly in working with waste brokers and trash brokers, less waste ends up in landfills and on the ground. Another large benefit is that new products are being created from recovered recyclables mostly from the retail waste management sector.
