Solid Waste Management Plan

Solid Waste Management PlanThe Solid Waste Management Plan is intended to provide a framework to facilitate and encourage integrated, comprehensive solid waste management planning at the local, multi-jurisdictional, and regional levels. A comprehensive solid waste management assists communities in meeting the statewide goal of reducing waste, providing for effective solid waste management, and ensuring ten years of collection capacity and disposal capacity.

Solid Waste Management Rules of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Chapter 110-4-3: the Minimum Standards and Procedures are designed to promote and reinforce the link between solid waste plans, the Solid Waste Annual Survey and Full Cost Report, and solid waste grants, loans, and facility permits. All solid waste management plans must include the following planning elements: waste disposal stream analysis; waste reduction; collection; disposal; land limitation; education and public involvement; and an implementation schedule. Specifically, the plan shall address the following: an adequate collection and disposal capacity; enumerate the solid waste handling facilities as to size and type; and identify those sites which are not suitable for solid waste handling faculties based on environmental and land use factors.

Solid Waste Management PlanAll local governments are required to complete an update to the "approved" Solid Waste Management Plan at least once every ten years. In addition, if any significant solid waste facility or program changes occur, an update to the Plan should be initiated to encompass the resultant actions that a major change in facilities or programs will create.

Henry County's current Solid Waste Management Plan was prepared by W.L. Jorden & Company, and approved on May 15, 1992. Then, it was revised by Henry County's Department of Solid Waste and Department of Community Development on December 23, 1994. A five year update to the Joint Henry County/Cities SWMP was completed in 2004 and adopted by Henry County and the Cities of Hampton, Locust Grove, McDonough and Stockbridge in 2005.
