Wednesday April 28, 2010 | What to do with our Trash?

April 26, 2010 at 11:12 am | Posted in Coming Up | 8 Comments

One common question for a large and growing region is what to do with the trash. Incinerators are becoming a more common way to dispose of tons of trash daily but the idea is met with mixed results. Recycling is also a way to deal with large qualities of trash, but one company aims to produce useable energy out of the things we throw away. We look at several types of incinerators in our region and the proposal for a whole new way of dealing with our trash.

There are thousands of small businesses in Charlotte and the surrounding region, many of them mom and pop operations, but these mom and pops were often born in another country. Immigrants are a large and growing source of small business ownership in our region. We look at the types of small businesses that immigrants start, where they are and their impact on Charlotte’s economy.
