The Solid Waste Management Act of 1989 established policies and goals to promote methods of solid waste management that are alternatives to disposal in landfills and to assist units of local government with solid waste management. The law requires the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (Department) to develop a comprehensive solid waste management plan with the collaboration of local government, regional planning agencies, and the general public.
The North Carolina Plan is currently in the process of being updated for the 2014-2024 cycle and feedback is being solicited in order to develop an action-based, achievable, and inclusive plan. One significant step toward achieving this goal is to survey the various stakeholders of North Carolina on elements of the proposed plan, keeping in mind that the North Carolina General Statutes require the plan to focus on education, public participation, and waste reduction goals.
The NCDENR Division of Waste Management (DWM) and Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service (DEACS*) thanks you for your participation and effort with this survey. Your input is a key element to the success of this development process.
*DEACS, formerly known as DEAO (Division of Environmental Assistance & Outreach), is integral to waste diversion, reduction, and recycling planning for the state.
