Grant Readle is an economist specializing in solid waste management, greenhouse gases, and materials forecasting. Mr. Readle holds a Master of Science degree in agriculture and resource economics from University of California, Davis. Mr. Readle’s most recent work and research centers on California’s various organics diversion mandates, and modelling the waste stream implications of full implementation of these programs. His data-driven approach to modelling uses well documented, peer-reviewed, and government endorsed methodologies to approach complex waste diversion issues. Mr. Readle has been a primary author on CEC Grant Final Project Reports for experimental facilities, Solid Waste Facility Permits, Hazardous Materials Business Plans, economic white papers on statewide waste Policy, research pilot projects for experimental compost facilities, greenhouse gas analyses of multiple companies, and a myriad of other research and permitting documents.
