Public Notice

Opportunity to Comment on Broome County Draft Solid Waste Management Plan Update

The Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management currently provides for the planning, implementation, management, and funding of Broome County's Integrated Solid Waste Management Program. The Original Solid Waste Management Plan was developed in 1989 and covered a 20 year planning period, from 1990 through 2010, and designated Broome County as the responsible planning unit for implementation and management of the Plan. The Plan was developed in compliance with New York State Solid Waste Management Policy as defined under the Solid Waste Management Act of 1988 (Chapter 70) and regulated under Title 6 of the New York State Code of Rules and Regulations, Subpart 360 (6 NYCRR Part 360 regulations). Under the current 6 NYCRR Part 360 requirements, a planning unit must prepare a Local Solid Waste Management Plan, including updates every 10 years, which must specifically consider and address current New York State Solid Waste Management Policy. The goal of the State program is to promote consistent strategies among municipalities in the management of municipal solid waste, including efforts to promote and implement actions to reduce, reuse, and recycle both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste products. In addition, State regulations require that all permit applications for new or expanded solid waste management facilities, made by or on behalf of a municipality in a planning unit, be in compliance and consistent with the local Solid Waste Management Plan in effect at the time of the application. A permit application will not be deemed complete if a Local Solid Waste Management Plan has not been adopted in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 360 Regulations.
