Lake County adopted its first Solid Waste Management Plan (the “Plan”) in 1989 and has since adopted the required five-year updates in 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2014 and now 2019 as represented by this document.
The Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act allows counties to delegate the development of the solid waste management plans to a municipal joint action agency. Lake County has chosen to delegate the updating of the original 1989 Plan to the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO), which was formed in 1990. State law still requires Lake County to formally adopt all plan updates and amendments, even though they may be prepared by SWALCO.
