R. W. Beck has been selected by
the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) to document the State's
solid waste management and recycling infrastructure. The initiative aims to
deliver this information, and a model for projecting future needs through a new,
interactive web-based information system featuring GIS capabilities, to be added
to CIWMB's expansive web site.

"This is the first data gathering, management and modeling project of its size,"
says Ed Boisson, project manager at R. W. Beck. "CIWMB's decision to centralize
information on the nation's largest and most advanced recycling infrastructure
should be of keen interest to waste management and recycling organizations
throughout California and in other states."

Mr. Boisson believes the tool can help CIWMB and local governments evaluate
current and future needs for recycling processing facilities, composting sites
and other waste reduction infrastructure. Private sector firms could utilize the
tool to investigate market opportunities.

The infrastructure inventory and information framework will also facilitate
consideration of regional initiatives by mapping existing solid waste and
recycling facilities and projecting regional waste generation and infrastructure
needs. "Ultimately, this tool will make it easier for state policymakers to set
a baseline grounded in current realities and plot a course towards CIWMB's zero
waste goal," explains Mr. Boisson.

The project will begin with a broad user needs assessment to ensure the
information system responds to stakeholders' needs and priorities. As it gathers
and manages data, R. W. Beck will abide by the confidentiality requirements of
facility owners and operators. The Firm will work with CIWMB on this two-year
$900,000 project to research and collect data, and develop the final information
framework, as well as a protocol for periodic updates.

Founded over 65 years ago, R. W. Beck ( is a technically based
business consulting and engineering firm providing services to both public and
private sectors in the areas of energy, water and waste resources.
