The State supports the "good management of solid waste and the conservation of natural resources through the promotion or development of systems to collect, separate, reclaim, recycle, and dispose of solid waste for energy production purposes when economically feasible and to provide a coordinated state solid waste management and resource recovery plan." This statute grants the primary responsibility for implementing adequate solid waste management systems to local governments. The statute limits the ability of the Department of Environmental Quality to enact regulations that are more stringent than comparable federal laws.
