The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Plan has been updated this year and several public meetings were held to allow public participation in this process. The Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act requires each Illinois County to prepare, adopt and implement a 20-year municipal waste management plan. Under this law, the plans must also be updated and reviewed every five years.
The original Ogle County Solid Waste Plan was adopted in 1991. Two subsequent five year updates were completed in 1998, and 2003. The final Solid Waste Management Plan (Twenty-Year Update) is available to be viewed or downloaded below, or copies are available at the Solid Waste Management Department in Oregon.
The purpose of doing the solid waste management plan update was to review the recommendations and tasks in the existing plan, discuss various waste management options, consider suggestions from the advisory committee, and to propose new recommendations to the Ogle County Board for the Twenty-Year Update. These recommendations included plans for waste reduction, recycling, and final disposal of waste generated in Ogle County.
The Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department worked diligently to update the Solid Waste Plan. Below is the final copy date February 2015 along with copies of the drafts, meeting information and minutes of the meetings.
