Solid Waste Policy Committee Seeks Student Representative
The Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District (District) Policy Committee is seeking a high school student (junior or senior) to join the committee. This is a non-voting position that allows the student to learn more about local environmental issues and how a government agency operates.
Prospective Hamilton County students are required to complete an application, provide a letter of recommendation, and secure both parental/guardian and principal permission to participate. The student’s term begins in September, 2018 with six bi-monthly meetings, concluding in July, 2019. The application form is available at HamiltonCountyRecycles.org; applications are due Thursday, June 14, 2018.
The Policy Committee consists of four permanent members, one non-voting member, and three additional representatives. Policy Committee responsibilities include reviewing and providing guidance on programs, reviewing and approving annual budgets, writing and implementing a 15-year solid waste management plan, and making recommendations to the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners on solid waste management policies. All Policy Committee member positions are unpaid, as is the Student Representative.
