Policy Committee

Untitled document

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

Beginning January 20, 2011, all meetings are held at 1:30 pm at Hamilton County Environmental Services conference rooms located at 250 William Howard Taft Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219, 1st Floor unless otherwise indicated.
