Going green may be a money-maker for developers. The most advanced, environmentally friendly and energy efficient buildings, garner generous tax breaks from the government.

National Correspondent Kristine Frazao reports in a special Waste Watch report Tuesday on Fox 11's Eyewitness News at 10 p.m.
