Genesee County Solid Waste Management

The Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended, Part 115, Solid Waste Management, and its Administrative Rules, requires that each county have a Solid Waste Management Plan Update every 5 years and that it be approved by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission is the Designated Planning Agency (DPA) responsible for plan updates and implementation.

As of February 2015, the MDEQ approved the Genesee County Solid Waste Management Plan Amendment. Implementation of the Plan began at the time of approval.

On March 26, 2002, the Genesee County Board of Commissioners adopted the Genesee County Solid Waste Ordinance #0-2.The purpose of the Ordinance is to implement the Genesee County Solid Waste Management Plan, and to protect and promote the public health, safety and welfare of the inhabitants of Genesee County by regulating the collection, transportation, delivery, and disposal of solid waste; to establish conditions for issuing waste hauler permits; to provide residents and businesses an incentive to recycle, thereby reducing the volume of solid waste; to preserve and improve the environment; to provide penalties for violations of the Ordinance; and to establish a county surcharge on solid waste collected in Genesee County, transported through a transfer facility in Genesee County, or disposed of in Genesee County, the funds collected by this Ordinance to be used to support the administration and solid waste planning and implementation programs described in the Genesee County Solid Waste Management Plan, as amended.

The Ordinance requires that all solid waste haulers that collect, transport, deliver, or dispose of solid waste generated within Genesee County obtain a waste hauler permit as well as file quarterly reports detailing waste handled during the quarter. These reports may be submitted via mail or fax (810)-257-3185, emailed to, or dropped off in person to our office.

Every year, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) publishes a document which reports the amount of solid waste landfilled in Michigan and its respective Counties. In FY 2015, nearly 47.5 million cubic yards of solid waste was landfilled in Michigan; this is an increase of 1.5% from the previous year. To view the DEQ’s most recent report, click here.
