The Advisory Committee

As part of the process to create the Solid Waste Plan 2040, the Mayor appointed an Advisory Committee comprised of a broad cross-section of community leaders.

Charge Statement

The Advisory Committee will review the components of the Plan, evaluate community inputs, provide guidance and feedback, and propose changes appropriate for inclusion in plan, and in doing so will:

  • Reflect input from the community and stakeholders on topics such as resource conservation, waste prevention, waste diversion, material reuse, recycling, energy recovery from waste, and land disposal of wastes;
  • Provide input that reflects the unique nature of the communities in the service area and their commitment to quality of life, investments, ideas, values, and partnerships;
  • Review waste management strategies based on criteria related to protection of the public health, risk for environmental impacts, conservation and preservation of resources, and economic and social benefits;
  • Ensure transparent decision making; and,
  • Ensure the final Plan complements other relevant City and County planning initiatives, including the most current Lincoln-Lancaster County 2040 Comprehensive Plan (LPlan 2040) and the Sustainable Lincoln plan currently being developed by Cleaner Greener Lincoln.
