About the Committee

State law requires the formation of a local Solid Waste Management District Policy Committee to oversee the writing and implementation of Hamilton County's Solid Waste Plan. In Hamilton County, the Policy Committee has historically functioned as a Policy Board in the truest sense - determining solid waste policy for the County and leaving implementation to R3Source staff.
