DELAWARE SOLID WASTE AUTHORITY
502 Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan
Pursuant to 7 Delaware Code, Sections 6403, 6404, 6406 and other pertinent provisions of 7 Delaware Code, Chapter 64; the Delaware Solid Waste Authority ("DSWA") is proposing to adopt a Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan to replace, in its entirety, the Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan last adopted on December 3, 2015.
Purpose: DSWA is required, pursuant to 7 Del. C. § 6403, to adopt a Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan. This Plan was initially adopted in May, 1994, and has been periodically updated and replaced. The purpose of the Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan is to establish policies and goals respecting solid waste disposal and recycling diversion, together with identification of programs necessary to implement these policies and goals. The Plan is intended to address the roles and responsibilities of DSWA in solid waste disposal and recycling diversion activities as they relate to both public bodies (State, counties, municipalities) and private enterprise. The Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan proposed for adoption will provide the framework for actions to be taken by DSWA and other stakeholders in Delaware to maximize recycling and diversion of materials from landfill disposal, and to help advance sustainable materials management practices and minimize greenhouse gas emissions in the State.
