Don’t get me wrong; there are solutions, or better, strategies, but they are not necessarily cheap or easy. For more than a decade, I volunteered on two different solid waste advisory groups for Carroll County Government — once as chairman, and once as co-chair. Despite our efforts, little changed in municipal solid waste over that time. The strategy through the last several Boards of Commissioners seems to have been to merely kick the can down the road. That lack of political will has only made any eventual resolution harder and more expensive for taxpayers.
