 Ten Year Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan


The County has developed and implemented a ten-year Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan to assure capacity for municipal solid waste generated in the county for a ten-year period. In addition to the capacity assurances, the plan identified a comprehensive integrated municipal waste management system for our county for the identified ten year period.

Each municipality has a copy of this plan and public copies are available for review at the Department of Waste Management office, the County Law Library and in the Planning Commission offices.
