§ 417-7. Responsibility to accept solid waste
(a) The District may become responsible for providing a system for solid waste disposal, as delineated in subsection (b) of this section when the Board of Supervisors declares the disposal system operational.
(b) The District may provide a system for disposal or recycling of all solid waste generated by residential and commercial activities within the member municipalities. The District may provide for the disposal of solid waste from industrial activities within a member municipality. The District may provide for the disposal of sludge through contract with a member municipality, provided the sludge is disposed of at no cost to the other member municipalities. Finally, the District may contract with a nonmember municipality or a private entity for the disposal of solid waste generated outside the boundaries of the District, provided the contract will not increase the cost of solid waste disposal to the member municipalities.
(c) Each member municipality agrees to act as a host community in the event the District decides to establish a solid waste transfer, treatment, or disposal facility within that member municipality. (Amended 2011, No. M-11 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. July 12, 2012.)
