Rural Study CoverRural & Underserved Area Disposal Needs Study

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), through funding by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), contracted with Reed, Stowe & Yanke, LLC to develop a report concerning solid waste collection and disposal options for residents and businesses in the rural and underserved areas of the 16-county NCTCOG region. The Rural and Underserved Area Disposal Needs Study provides a county-by-county analysis of disposal needs, as well as, in-depth descriptions concerning options available to local governments (especially counties) to manage their solid waste. The options focus on solutions that can be realistically implemented by rural counties.

Some key topics included in the report are:

  • Key findings and recommendations for counties based on the Rural and Underserved Area Disposal Needs Assistance Study
  • How counties in the North Central Texas region can use the Rural and Underserved Area Disposal Needs Assistance Study as a resource guide
  • Regulatory and Policy Issues: Legal foundations for an organized county-wide solid waste collection system
  • Successful planning for citizens’ collection stations and transfer stations
  • Implementation Strategies: Establishing an organized countywide solid waste collection system
  • Service Provider Options: The most appropriate entity to service the county
  • Funding Issues: Overview of costs and funding alternatives
  • Procurement: Selecting service providers
  • Long-term strategic relationships and sub-regional authorities
  • Eligible funding categories to address rural solid waste collection and disposal issues
