Ten Year Solid Waste Management Plan
Notice: The Baltimore County Department of Public Works is developing a new Ten Year Solid Waste Management Plan to cover the 2019 through 2028 period. As part of the Plan development process, a County Executive-appointed Solid Waste Management Citizens Review Committee (SWMCRC) has been formed to provide input and recommendations to the County regarding the content of the new Plan. The next meeting of the SWMCRC will be held on Thursday, May 4 at 7 p.m. in the Executive Conference Room at 400 Washington Avenue in Towson. Information about this meeting, including a draft Executive Summary of the new Plan (PDF), is available on the County website.
Development of 2009 through 2018 Plan
A lengthy and extensive public participation process (including a telephone survey in 2006 of 223 County residents, four public discussion meetings around the County and a public hearing) preceded the submission of Baltimore County's Ten Year Solid Waste Management Plan to the County Council in 2008. The record of this public participation process is available for review. For more information, please contact the Bureau of Solid Waste Management in writing at the address below.
