Lane County’s Waste Management Division is seeking public input on its update to
the regional Solid Waste Management Plan, including potential strategies toincrease waste diversion from the landfill. This update is a cooperative effort
among community members, local governments, and private industry stakeholdersto develop an effective Solid Waste Master Plan that will guide regional efforts
through 2030. It is an opportunity to seek new and innovative solutions andpartnerships that will support a healthier community.
The ultimate goal of the updated management plan is to develop a waste management system that is environmentally sound, technologically feasible, costeffective, locally controlled, and publicly acceptable, while providing for an overall reduction in waste generation. There are two ways for community members to provide feedback:
- Complete the brief online survey by Sept. 16
- Attend the Eugene Metro community meeting on Monday, September 19,
6:00 p.m.–7:30 p.m. in the Atrium Building Lobby (99 W. 10th Avenue,Eugene)
The meeting includes an open house from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with informationfor those who are unfamiliar with the details of Lane County’s regional solid waste
systems. In addition to the community meetings, Lane County staff will reach outto city representatives, those in the solid waste industry, and business leaders.
As the largest city in our regional wasteshed, the City of Eugene plays an integralrole in the development of this plan, and community feedback is highly
