Solid Waste Management Program

We all generate waste, be it packaging from food or other consumer products, grass clippings & branches from our yards or broken or obsolete electronics. If disposed of inappropriately, these wastes could create nuisances, environmental hazards or public health risks. Use the information on the Solid Waste Management webpages to learn how properly store, treat, transport and dispose of solid waste materials.
