Key themes accountability

KEY THEMES: Accountability

“This plan places a great emphasis on accountability. Many entities, public and private, have the responsibility for implementing this Plan, including state and local governments; private waste and recycling businesses; citizens; manufacturers of products; retailers and other businesses; and environmental groups. All must be held accountable. The WMA gives the state agencies and counties primary oversight for holding the parties accountable. However, the authorities granted to the state and counties may not be sufficient, and this issue will have to be monitored, and possible changes in authority sought.”


Solid waste abatement objectives

SOLID WASTE ABATEMENT OBJECTIVES

  • Required by statute to set quantifiable objectives

  • Reduction/reuse, recycling, and organics objectives are presented in ranges, with the lower end representing a “floor” or minimum

  • Resource recovery objectives were set to maximize existing capacity

  • Landfill objective is given as a “ceiling” or maximum


Table 1 system objectives

TABLE 1: System Objectives


Metro mandatory processing minn stat 473 848

METRO MANDATORY PROCESSINGMINN. STAT. § 473.848

  • A person may not dispose of unprocessed MSW at a landfill, unless the waste has been certified as unprocessible by a county.

  • To be processed, the MSW must be reduced in weight by 65 percent.

  • The MPCA will use its regulatory authority with respect to landfills to enforce the law.

  • Counties need to work with the Agency regarding the data analysis in order for the enforcement to be effective.


System costs

SYSTEM COSTS

  • Data provided by metro and non-metro county solid waste staff and haulers

  • Costs per ton presented as ranges to reflect inherent variability

  • Costs actually reflect price or charges paid

  • Compared potential costs of maintaining status quo in 2015 vs. reaching the plan objectives in 2015


Table 4 estimated costs per ton

Table 5 potential changes to solid waste management costs

Strategies to reach the objectives

STRATEGIES TO REACH THE OBJECTIVES

  • Table 3 in Plan provides potential strategies and guide for implementation

  • Responsible parties and roles, need for new tools are identified

  • Flexibility is emphasized; not mandatory or exhaustive list

  • Regional solutions are preferred when more effective and efficient

MPCA’S ROLE

      • Certificate of Need law (M.S. §§ 115A.917 and 473.823)

Discussion question2

DISCUSSION QUESTION

  • One way this plan differs significantly from the 2004 plan is it’s inclusion of a System Plan that includes specific and quantifiable objectives as required in statute.

    • Do you feel these objectives are achievable?

    • If you don’t think they are, how would you change them?


Discussion question3

DISCUSSION QUESTION
