Presentation Title: Using Strategic Collaboration to Streamline the Permitting Process

Presentation Description: It is not uncommon for the permitting process for commercial composting facilities to take at least three to four years or more to complete. Brady Trucking Commercial Composting Facility (60,000 tons per year) situated within the city limits of Shelton, Washington is a case study demonstrating how a strategically collaborative approach resulted in an expedited outcome. The facility was successfully conceptualized, designed, permitted and constructed within two years. The presentation will summarize how that was accomplished.
