The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Policy Committee is responsible for the preparation and adoption of a solid waste management plan for Cuyahoga County that must be submitted to the Ohio EPA for review and approval. The plan must comply with all aspects of Ohio law, including Ohio EPA regulations and Ohio’s Solid Waste Plan. Each plan must be updated at least every five years. The Committee is comprised of representatives from the County government, municipal leaders and two at-large representatives, one of whom shall serve environmental interests and one who will represent industrial and commercial waste interests.

Pursuant to provisions in the Ohio Revised Code, each solid waste district must establish and convene a policy committee to prepare the solid waste management plan for the district. The Committee established for Cuyahoga County requires an at-large representative who will represent the “industrial, commercial, or institutional generators of solid wastes within the district”. The selected representative will serve a two-year term and will serve without compensation.
