Solid Waste Program
The Solid Waste Program regulates the disposal of solid wastes such as municipal garbage, tires, yard waste, construction and demolition debris, contaminated soil, and sludge. The program also issues solid waste disposal permits, reviews and approves plans and specifications, performs inspections of disposal sites, and investigates complaints pertaining to the improper disposal of solid waste.
Proper disposal of solid waste is important to protect public health and the environment. The Environmental Health Division investigates complaints about improper disposal of solid waste. Please contact your local county office to report any improper disposal of solid waste.
