Solid Waste Management Plan
The Regional Solid Waste Management Plan was developed with the intention of addressing all areas of solid waste management, stressing source reduction and recycling. The ETCOG regional planning efforts include a cooperative, regional approach that tries to include all actors associated with these activities.
Regional goals outlined in the plan include the following:
Maintain long term, cost effective transportation and disposal opportunities for all areas of the region.
Promote programs to control illegal dumping in incorporated and unincorporated areas and manage special wastes.
Develop and encourage cost effective recycling, composting, source reduction, and other waste minimization activities taking place in the Region.
Develop and evaluate institutional arrangement affecting waste management.
Coordinate Regional Plan implementation and encourage local planning activities.
