Solid Waste

The Regional Service Commissions will provide solid waste disposal services to the Municipalities, Rural Communities and Local Service Districts within their respective regions, a role currently performed by the Solid Waste Commissions.  This includes the operation of the landfills and transfer stations, as well the coordination of various recycling programs, the handling of hazardous waste and the promotion of composting. 

The Regional Service Commissions may also become involved in handling the collection of solid waste and in the generation of electricity, as is presently the case in some regions.
