Solid Waste Branch

The Solid Waste Branch provides technical assistance to county environmentalists who work in the solid waste, septage management, and vector control programs. Local activities include the investigation of vector control complaints and unauthorized dumps, the permitting/inspection of transfer stations, processing facilities, garbage collection vehicles and the permitting and inspection of septage/grease land application sites. Many counties also enforce local mandatory garbage collection programs and review applications for certificates of exception for such programs.
