Waste Reduction & Outreach: Follow-up Audit

In a recent follow-up audit, the Office of the Metro Auditor found that Metro made progress prioritizing waste prevention activities as recommended in a previous audit, Waste Reduction and Outreach: Shift in strategy recommended.  In the 2008 report, evidence showed that residents of the region were committed to recycling, but were producing an increasing amount of waste. The audit concluded that greater environmental benefits could be gained if Metro focused resources on preventing waste rather than recycling it.
