County Board approves Regional Solid Waste Management Plan with R1PC

The Illinois Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act requires all Illinois counties to update their 20-year comprehensive solid waste management plan every five (5) years. To achieve this, Boone and Winnebago counties partnered with the Region 1 Planning Council (R1PC) to create a regional plan update on behalf of both counties. The Operations and Administrative Committee recommends approval of the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan, and it received County Board approval on Thursday, November 10, 2022.

The Regional Solid Waste Management Plan: A Plan for Boone and Winnebago Counties 2022-2042 was prepared in accordance with the Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act and utilizes guidance set forth in the Illinois Materials Management Advisory Committee's July 2021 Report to the General Assembly.
