By Kansas statute, the Seward County Landfill’s solid waste management plan committee is required to meet annually.
The committee met Oct. 22 at the Activity Center, and Monday, Norvan Correll, committee chairman, updated county commissioners on what was discussed at the meeting.
“We had representatives from our whole service area plus 10 counties here in Kansas we collect electronic waste from,” he said. “At this meeting, we discussed updates to our solid waste management plan.


Anytime we change an operation or we add something in equipment, we have to reflect that in this plan. This year, we put in all the information from 2007.”
Correll said this includes valuations from that year. He added the landfill has brought in some new services this year.
“We’re participating with KDHE on an electronic waste program for two years,” he said. “We’re also expanding waste hauling to where we go out and pick up residential trash. That’s reflected.”


Correll said the director of the Bureau of Waste Management stated in the contingency portion of the plan if there was a recycling program, the landfill could be reimbursed for time.
Correll also said the committee discussed rates on the landfill and what members project for the future.
“All of it goes back to the amount of solid waste we took in,” he said.


Commissioners voted unanimously to adopt Resolution No. 2008-12 regarding the Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan.
