Madera County Launches Solid Waste Management Study

MADERA COUNTY — Madera County has launched a comprehensive study of the County’s solid waste management program. The study will be conducted by an independent consulting firm and informed by input from Madera County stakeholders and community members, which aims to provide an in-depth analysis of current solid waste practices and identify opportunities for improvement.

“We’re committed to providing sustainable and compliant waste management solutions that support the communities of Madera County and benefit the environment,” said Chairman David Rogers. “This study will provide us with valuable information to ensure the County complies with state regulations and manages waste in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner that protects the health, safety, and welfare of the community.”

The study is expected to take approximately six months to complete, and its success will hinge on input from various stakeholders and the community, including county residents, businesses, advocacy groups, and waste management professionals.
