Materials Management Planning

Amendments to the Michigan's solid waste statute were signed into law December 2022. 

NEW Materials Management Plans (MMPs) have officially been called for.

This begins the MMP approval and development process. First steps are to identify the County Approval Agency (CAA) through the submittal of a Notice of Intent by July 6, 2024.

Prior to approval of new MMPs, each county has an existing Solid Waste Management Plan, that focuses on ensuring adequate disposal capacity and assures that all non-hazardous solid waste generated in the county is collected and recovered, processed, or disposed at facilities that comply with state laws and rules. MMPs will transition this framework to a more materials management focus.

CURRENT SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANS WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL A NEW MATERIALS MANAGEMENT PLAN IS APPROVED.

Current Steps

    In addition to ensuring that waste disposal practices are protective of the public and environment, we promote a systematic approach to using/reusing resources productively and sustainably throughout their life cycles, from the point of resource extraction through material recycling or final disposal. Materials management includes managing recyclables, organics, tires, wood, concrete, and other materials traditionally considered trash and landfilled.
