Metropolitan Solid Waste Policy Plan

Counties in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area are required by state law to revise their waste management master plans after the adoption of the Metropolitan Solid Waste Management Policy Plan. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) adopted a revised Metropolitan Solid Waste Management Policy Plan on April 6, 2011.

The Policy Plan supports the goals of improving public health, reducing the reliance on landfills, conserving energy and natural resources, and reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
