Solid Waste Management

The Division of Solid Waste Management of the Dutchess County Department of Planning and Development formulates programs for the collection and disposal of solid waste (discarded material) generated within Dutchess County.

Our main function is to implement the Dutchess County Local Solid Waste Management Plan, Rethinking Waste.

The three main goals of the plan are: 

  • Reducing the amount of waste generated within Dutchess County
  • Increasing the amount of waste that is recycled and reused
  • Converting the remaining waste to electricity through waste-to-energy disposal; minimizing the use of landfill disposal
