The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) announces that the draft of the New Hampshire Solid Waste Management Plan is now available for public comment. The Solid Waste Management Plan is a 10-year, high-level plan outlining goals, strategies and actions intended to reduce generation of solid waste, increase diversion from disposal, achieve the state’s solid waste disposal reduction goal (RSA 149-M:2), support the state’s solid waste management hierarchy (RSA 149-M:3), and maintain adequate capacity for management of waste generated in New Hampshire.

NHDES will accept written comments on the draft plan until 4:00 PM, August 26, 2022. A final version of the plan will be published by October 1, 2022, as required by RSA 149-M:29, I.
