Waste Reduction Sponsorships

  1. Waste Reduction Sponsorships: Background and Overview

  2. The Washtenaw County Board of Public Works (BPW), Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners , and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) approved the 2017 Solid Waste Plan (SWP). The SWP sets forth a set of goals and principles for reducing waste and increasing landfill diversion within Washtenaw County. The BPW created a new committee to provide input, guidance, and direction, and technical advice for implementation of the SWP called the Plan Implementation Advisory Committee (PIAC).

  3. In furtherance of the goals and objectives related to eliminating waste, the BPW and the PIAC have created the Waste Reduction Sponsorships. At the beginning of each calendar year and including 2019, $100,000, will be available. Large sponsorships (defined in the attachment below) will receive priority consideration. A percentage of the total fund will be set aside for Small and Medium sponsorships. Any unallocated funds from the Large sponsorships will be available for Medium and Small sponsorships.
