SMART TRASH DISTRICT: Extended Sustainable Urban Development of Downtown Savannah

The sustainable transport and collection of materials from a solid waste stream and processing them into new products for people to buy.
Savannah’s recycling program which isn't a year old yet has been great for the residents that it has
been able to reach. With future demolish projects and projected growth in the area, Savannah’s
recycling program needs to be able to handle an increase in recyclable trash while maintaining its
historic integrity
“The main issue is to change[people’s] mindset from ‘waste’ to ‘recoverable resources’ that allow us to save natural resources while creating and maintaining jobs that contribute to economic development in Georgia”
“We have this recycling industry that needs this material, aren't they a lot more viable as a business if they can get those raw materials closer to home”
– Randy Hartmann, Director of the Department of Community Affairs Office of Environmental Management.

“These businesses create jobs and tax base for the jurisdictions in which they operate, contributing to the positive economic impact of our state”
