Because of good landfill management practices that entail aggressive gas collection and re-sale, the emissions from the waste sector in Dallas are very minimal. However, during the public engagement part of developing the CECAP, there was significant public interest in additional actions within this sector. In FY 22-23, 7 actions from this sector, with 19 milestones will be initiated. Implementation of these milestones will involve collaboration between the following City departments:
