Chapter 5. Integrated System Selection

The selection of the alternatives previously analyzed (e.g., activities, processes, programs, new technologies, etc.) is the defining structure of the LSWMP and therefore, the solid waste management system selected needs to be thoroughly identified and completely described, outlining the infrastructure and programs to be developed during the planning period.

This chapter needs to include, but not be limited to:

• A description of each of the proposed program elements
• A list of reasons for selection of the proposed program elements.
• A narrative assessing the impact of the proposed system on the existing program.
• A discussion of the anticipated outcome of the proposed program elements and an assessment of the projected impacts.
• An identification of the specific public relations and education programs to be undertaken for implementation of the recyclables and organics recovery program.
• An identification of the local laws, rules, regulations, or ordinances which will need to be enacted, changed, or enhanced in order to fulfill the goals of the solid waste management system selected.
• A description of the infrastructure needs for the proposed program elements necessary to effectively implement the program.
• An identification of the program staff or entities responsible for performing the proposed program elements.
• An identification of the required resources for performing the proposed program elements.
• An identification of the program staff or entities responsible for performing the proposed program elements.

If the LSWMP relies on the private sector to manage one or more specific waste streams, the LSWMP must address how these waste streams will be managed if the private sector does not provide adequate management
