Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) is pleased to announce the publication of the 2022 New Hampshire Solid Waste Management Plan which is now available on NHDES’ website. Prepared pursuant to RSA 149-M:29, I, the Solid Waste Management Plan is a ten-year, high-level plan outlining goals, strategies and actions to improve solid waste management in New Hampshire.
How we manage solid waste affects every citizen and visitor to our state and is a topic of keen interest. During the public comment period for this plan, NHDES received input from 74 individuals and organizations. The Plan incorporates suggestions received through these public comments and from the New Hampshire Solid Waste Working Group.
In a cover letter issued with the Plan, NHDES Commissioner Robert Scott said, “The level of attention and concern demonstrated through these comments bodes well for New Hampshire’s success in achieving the plan’s goals, because success will depend upon active participation from everyone.”
NHDES is excited to work with such engaged stakeholders, and to begin implementing the strategies and actions that the plan sets forth, to build a better, more sustainable solid waste management system for New Hampshire.
