Goals The following sections present a baseline assessment of existing materials management and recycling data in the region, noting existing infrastructure, activities, and trends that impact materials management. Sustainability goals are then presented along with relevant sustainability indicators and targets by which to monitor and quantify progress over time. While carrying out the baseline assessment, it was found that data were not collected, treated, or presented in the same manner across counties, or even within individual communities. Going forward, it would be valuable to set a standard set of data quality objectives based on best practices in the region. This would allow planners to make decisions based on comparable and replicable datasets, which would better inform investment and project siting decisions.
