Residential Solid Waste Profile & Assessment Report


The Washtenaw County Solid Waste Program has released its Residential Solid Waste Profile and Assessment Report.  The Washtenaw County Comprehensive Plan identified several challenges and opportunities for the County's solid waste management system.  To address these challenges and opportunities, the County Solid Waste Program completed an assessment of the current residential solid waste management system and developed a set of recommendations for consideration by local units of government.

This report is intended to stimulate discussion about the findings and recommendations.  Additionally, the findings and recommendations are intended to assist local units of government in developing residential solid waste systems that are convenient and cost-effective, are sustainable, promote waste reduction and recycling and reduce impacts to the environment and public health.
