One pathway to a circular economy is through “zero waste to landfill” (ZWTL), a strategy to divert all waste from landfill disposal. As illustrated below, businesses are achieving their ZWTL goals by moving up the waste hierarchy.

The waste management hierarchy

Our process affords our customers confidence and credibility in their claims to ZWTL performance. We have worked with our customers’ third-party verifiers to provide documentation that proves that the waste we process has been diverted from landfill and processed in our WTE facilities. For more information, please see Covanta’s white paper, ZWTL Verification.
