July 12 marks deadline for interest in statewide solid waste advisory group

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

With applications from interested parties due by July 12, 2013, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is still seeking stakeholders to serve on its Municipal Solid Waste Management and Resource Recovery Advisory Council.

The council, whose charge to help further the efficient and effective management of solid waste includes evaluating state policy impacts and recommending applicable legislation, projects, special studies and funding-related policies, meets four times a year. 

Members serve six-year staggered terms and represent interests such as public agencies, commercial landfill operators, composting and recycling companies, financial advisors, the general public and others.

TCEQ is accepting membership applications in the following eight categories:

  • A representative from a solid waste management organization comprised primarily of commercial operators.
  • A person experienced in the management and operation of a composting or recycling facility or an educator with knowledge of the design and management of solid waste facilities.
  • An elected official from a municipality with a population between 100,000 and 750,00.
  • An elected official from a municipality with a population between 25,000 and 100,000.
  • A representative of the financial community.
  • An elected official from a county with a population less than 150,000.
  • An elected official from a municipality with a population less than 25,000.
  • A representative of the general public.
