The purpose of the Solid Waste Task Force is to advise the Energy and Environment Committee and the Regional Council on solid and hazardous waste issues in the SCAG region. The Solid Waste Task Force identifies relevant legislation and guides the development of the Solid and Hazardous Waste chapter of the Regional Comprehensive Plan.
SCAG's decision makers adopt regional solid waste policies that will enable the region to support state solid waste goals while growing in accordance with SCAG's adopted plans, such as the Regional Transportation Plan, Compass Growth Vision, and Regional Comprehensive Plan and Guide.
SCAG is responsible for preparing the Southern California Hazardous Waste Management Plan pursuant to the California Health and Safety Code.
SCAG currently is updating its Regional Comprehensive Plan (RCP). The Solid Waste chapter of the RCP discusses the current solid waste management planning process in Southern California, and identifies potential regional strategies and actions for improving the region's solid waste management system.
