These statutes encourage the State and local governments to develop waste management strategies to achieve the maximum possible reduction in waste generation, eliminate or reduce adverse environmental impacts, encourage source separation of materials, and improve the efficiency of the overall system. The legislation also establishes solid waste management districts, to provide for coordinated planning of waste disposal strategies.
