A resolution urging the Governor to appoint members to two councils that are not currently active in order to improve solid waste management in New Jersey was recently advanced by the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee.

The measure (AR-67), sponsored by Assembly Democrats Nancy Pinkin, Yvonne Lopez and John McKeon, urges the Governor to appoint members and select both a Chair and Vice Chair for the “Advisory Council on Solid Waste Management” and the “Recycling Market Development Council.” The purpose of both councils is to review and offer recommendations on various aspects of the waste management and recycling industries in New Jersey.

The former council was established several decades ago but has not met since 2014 and is therefore no longer active, while the latter council has not had any members appointed since its establishment earlier this year.
