State statute requires that each county develop and maintain a Solid Waste Management Plan. SEMCOG, as the Regional Solid Waste Planning Agency, participates on each county's solid waste management planning committees as plans are developed and updated.
To assist communities in planning activities, SEMCOG serves as a source of information on solid waste issues and provides technical assistance in plan development and implementation, as appropriate. SEMCOG advocates that County Solid Waste Management Plans ensure that solid waste disposal facilities are sited, constructed, and operated so as to exceed the minimum environmental requirements by the greatest amount possible.
