Solid Waste Management Planning

The St. Clair County Board of Commissioners, under authority of Section 11539a of part 115, Solid Waste Management, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act 1994 P.A. 451, as amended shall appoint a Designated Planning Agency (DPA) who is responsible for preparation of the County’s Solid Waste Management Plan (Plan). The duties of the DPA are specified in both sections of the law and rules (Section 11535 and Rules 706, 707, 711[g]). These duties include:

  • arrange and hold meetings of the Solid Waste Management Planning Committee (Committee),
  • hold public hearings on the draft Plan,
  • publish public notices,
  • do research and gather information and public comments necessary to prepare the plan,
  • draft plan materials and documents,
  • mail notices and plan materials as necessary,
  • maintain a central repository for public review of plan materials,
  • maintain mailing lists, and
  • conduct all public participation activities.

In carrying out these duties, the DPA provides staff support to the Committee. The St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission (SCCMPC) is recognized by the County Board of Commissioners as the Designated Planning Agency for St. Clair County.

  • As per Part 115 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451 (as amended), the St Clair County Board of Commissioners appoints a Solid Waste Management Planning Committee to assist the county agency designated to prepare the County’s Solid Waste Management Plan (Plan). In Michigan, County’s do not update their Plans until directed to do so by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). While it has been sometime since the MDEQ requested counties update their plans (2000), they have actually asked counties to refrain from updates unless an amendment is necessary to accommodate something like a new facility request. As such, the St. Clair County Solid Waste Management Planning Committee does not have any meetings scheduled at the present time. The County does maintain a quorum of membership on this committee if the need for an amendment should arise.
