2015 - 2025 Solid Waste and Materials Management Plan

Objective 8: Develop Sustainable Funding Sources for Sustainable Materials Management


The purpose of this objective is to ensure that state and local governments have sustainable funding sources in place to develop and support programs to manage MSW and materials. TDEC's Division of Solid Waste Management and Office of Policy and Planning are starting discussions to evaluate solid waste fee data.  A small working group of local governments representing diverse solid waste and recycling programs and environmental groups will be participating in fee discussions and assisting with data analysis.  The next meeting is April 2017 where the working group will discuss Objective 1 and 8 implementation. Updated information about the working group progress will be shared on the Objective 1 and Objective 8 webpages.   


There will be other opportunities to get involved in the implementation of the Objective 8.  We value the input provided by all our stakeholders during this process.  The best way to participate is to visit our website often and share your comments and areas of interest via our new 2025 Plan Public Participation comment form
