The Solid Waste measure proposed in the CAP is derived from the County’s Strategic Plan to Reduce Waste (Strategic Plan), approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 26, 2017. The measure aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by encouraging expansion of other diversion programs in the County and exceeding the state’s waste diversion target.
The Solid Waste category is composed of one strategy and one measure with supporting efforts. The CAP’s Solid Waste measure will contribute:
- 0% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2020 target;
- 3% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2030 target;
of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2050 goal.
