Solid Waste Management Plans
Materials Management Planning
For local questions, contact your County or Regional Designated Planning Agency Contact.
Currently each county has a Solid Waste Management Plan, soon to be a Materials Management Plan, that ensures 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. Counties will be transitioning to plans with a materials management focus.
THE CURRENT SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANS REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL A NEW MATERIALS MANAGEMENT PLAN IS APPROVED.
*** Part 115 Materials Management Plan Update***
Michigan’s NEW solid waste statute was signed into law December 2022.
This is exciting news for the state of Michigan, as it memorializes our new way of thinking about end-of-life materials; it is a change from items being disposed to a holistic materials management approach!
Please continue to check the information below and Michigan.gov/SolidWaste for updates.

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. This map shows the locations of these regulated facilities.

Plan Update Information
Part 115 requires waste import/export authorizations.
This means waste must be approved by both the county sending the waste and the county receiving the waste. This is called reciprocal authorization. The county sending the waste is the exporter and the county receiving the waste is the importer.
Ex. County A sends waste to County B
County A exports to County B
County B imports from County A
