Solid Waste has two Citizens Advisory Boards:
WASTE MANAGEMENT ADVISORY BOARD
The Waste Management Advisory Board (WMAB) was established in 1988 by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) for the purposes of providing citizen input on solid waste management issues facing the County.
The WMAB assists in the development of the County's ten-year waste management plan, considers and recommends waste reduction, recycling and final disposal strategies, reviews capital and operating budgets, and provides recommendations to the BOCC on the selection of consultants and contractors for solid waste projects. The WMAB also hears appeals for exemptions from the Residential Solid Waste Fee levied by the County and for violations and penalties assessed under the County's Mandatory Commercial Source Separation Ordinance.
Appointments to the WMAB are made by the BOCC for two three-year terms. This is a twenty member board.
