The Western Lake Superior Sanitary District board of directors held a public hearing regarding a new Northeast MN Regional Solid Waste Management Plan before its monthly meeting Monday afternoon. Later, the District's nine-member citizen board voted 8-0, with one abstention, to approve the new management plan, which the MPCA requires every 10 years. The MPCA previously approved the plan June 6.


“This Plan serves as an important road map for developing and implementing collaborative waste reduction and resource recovery efforts in order to preserve natural resources and extend the finite landfill capacity in the northeast region over the next 10 years,” said Brandon Kohlts, WLSSD's Manager of Planning and Technical Services.
