Solid Waste / DPW Home

Mission Statement: To prepare and implement the Livingston County Solid Waste Management Plan in accordance with Part 115 of Act 451, as amended.

The plan was developed to meet three primary goals:
  • Develop and implement an integrated solid waste management program which protects public health by maximizing environmental and economic benefits.
  • Develop and implement mechanisms to control illegal dumping by providing incentives and education to prevent illegal dumping from occurring.
  • Build an educated public where citizens are informed about and understand solid waste management issues and concerns.
