Sound Financial Planning to Achieve Your Solid Waste Operational Goals- An SCS Engineers 2017 Article Series

April 19, 2017

The economic concepts discussed in the articles here are used by solid waste agencies to help determine the economic feasibility of a particular project, to determine service rates adjustments, and in general plan for the financial health and longevity of operations.

 

Many of our clients’  incorporate economic planning, financial analysis, and feasibility studies into their master planning and have requested copies of these articles. Our list starts with examples of how clients applied the concepts to their circumstances and achieved their goals using the financial tools described in the list.

Then we move on to more general articles focused on specific types of analyses and studies; each article will provide advice on how to start, or perhaps consider a new angle.

The final sections are geared toward using analysis and feasibility for specific goals such as recycling or waste conversion.

Each article may be printed or shared using the icons on the left navigation bar. Or, you may share or email this page to keep it handy. SCS respects your privacy; we do not monitor or collect your email address or information.
