Marc Rogoff Coauthored a Paper on the Solid Waste Industry in the Post-Pandemic World in WasteAdvantage Magazine

Marc Rogoff, Ph.D., (Florida) coauthored a paper entitled "The Solid Waste Industry in the Post-Pandemic World" that was published in WasteAdvantage Magazine on pages 32-37 in the November 2021 Issue on October 31, 2021.

Marc Rogoff was the lead author, and his coauthor was David Biderman.

The article explores the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has brought changes and new challenges to the solid waste industry, including delayed collection services; temporary suspension of recycling, yard waste, or bulky waste pickup; and backups at scale houses and MRF facilities. While Rogoff and Biderman discuss waste-related frustrations exacerbated by the pandemic, they also address programs that have been implemented to mitigate service disruptions and continuity of service. The article speaks to labor impacts, mergers and acquisitions, supply chains, recycling markets, and safety, as well as the need for change in the industry for a better future.
