Waste Notices & Hearings
Public Participation Opportunities
The Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) recognizes the importance of public input in the permitting process. Public notices are used to advise the public about new applications, tentative and final permit decisions, and opportunities for the public to provide input into the decision making process. Public notices may be placed in local newspapers, and radio stations may be used to broadcast a notice.
Members of the public can also request to have notices sent directly to their attention. DSWM maintains the Solid/Hazardous Waste Management Mailing List for this purpose. To be added to the mailing list, please complete and submit a Mailing List Request form (CN-0837). If you have any questions concerning this form, you may contact the Division of Solid Waste Management at Solid.Waste@tn.gov or 615-532-0788.
Additional information about the facilities and permits addressed by these notices may be found in the Solid Waste Management Dataviewer.
If it is hard for you to read, speak, or understand English, please see our Language Assistance webpage for more information about our free language assistance services.
