Local government offices are required by state law to prepare a 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan and provide updates every three years. New Hanover County collects the plans from all government offices within the county and compiles them into the 10-year Solid Waste Area Management Plan.
The plan includes the city's fee schedule, projects planned for the next three years, as well as an overview of the past three years. Additionally, specific goals are set in the plan for reducing the amount of waste sent to the area landfill and for increasing recycling and composting.
The city will hold its public meeting in conjunction with the county and other municipal government offices located within the the county. County staff will present an overview of the draft plan and answer questions related to the plan. City staff will also be on hand to answer questions.
