The Colorado Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission meets quarterly in various locations around the state to hear local perspectives on solid and hazardous waste issues in the area. Community members, government employees, and elected officials from each area are all encouraged to attend. The next such meeting is planned for August 12.
“Getting a firsthand look at local operations and talking with residents better informs the commission and helps them fulfill their responsibility to protect our environment,” said Brandy Valdez-Murphy, commission Administrator.
The commission is a nine-member board appointed by the Governor whose primary role is to adopt rules pertaining to solid and hazardous waste. It is composed of three members from the regulated industry, three members from local government or academia, and three members from the public at large.
