Solid Waste Management Plan

Purpose

The Washoe County Solid Waste Management Plan is a document produced by the Wahoe County Health District, Waste Management Program which describes the current solid waste management system in Washoe County. It covers topics such as garbage service, household hazardous waste, public outreach programs, recycling services, waste-to-energy technologies and illegal dumping. It also provides information on alternative waste management technologies and local solid waste generation trends. The Waste Management Program uses this document both as a historical reference but also as a program management and planning tool.

Currently the Waste Management Program is updating the Plan and it is going for approval at the November 17th, 2016 District Board of Health meeting.
