Composting systems—even high-tech ones—do not require the same level of capital investment as landfills or incinerators. While more research is warranted, our survey found that on a dollar-per-capital-investment basis, Maryland's 15 composting, mulching, and natural wood waste recycling operations sustain 2 times more jobs than the two landfills surveyed and 17 times more jobs than Maryland’s three incineration facilities.
