PUBLIC NOTICE for Public Comments on the Tallahatchie County Solid Waste Management Plan by the Tallahatchie County Board of Supervisors
The Tallahatchie County Board of Supervisors is soliciting comments from the public on the updated and comprehensive, draft version of the Tallahatchie County Solid Waste Management Plan. A local solid waste management plan that focuses on meeting the waste management needs of the area for the next 20 years is required by the Mississippi Solid Waste Law. The original Tallahatchie County plan was developed and approved in 1994 and was a joint plan with the Northwest Solid Waste Management Plan with Tate County.  This comprehensive and updated version will, upon approval, replace that original plan that is now outdated. The new plan identifies the current solid waste management system, the current local needs and a plan for meeting those needs for Tallahatchie County and the municipalities of Charleston, Sumner, Glendora, Tutwiler and Webb. The draft plan is available for review at the following locations between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at the following locations: 
• Tallahatchie County Courthouse in Sumner, Mississippi
Chancery Clerk’s Office
401 W. Court St.  Sumner, MS

Chancery Clerk Office
1 Court Sq, Charleston, MS 
• Charleston Public Library
102 E. Walnut St.  Charleston, MS
• Tutwiler Public Library
303 2nd St.  Tutwiler, MS
Comments from the public on the plan can be provided to the County in writing, within the thirty (30) day public comment period, or at the upcoming public hearing that the County will hold on the matter. Any written comments may be mailed or otherwise delivered to the Tallahatchie County Chancery Clerk's office by 5:00 pm, July 22, 2019. The public hearing will be held on July 1, 2019 at 11:00 a.m in the Board Room at the Tallahatchie County Courthouse in Charleston at1 Court Sq. Charleston, MS, Mississippi. 
The new draft of the Tallahatchie County Solid Waste Management Plan is a comprehensive plan for the County and the local municipalities that identifies how these local governments will continue to provide for the management of residential garbage and other solid wastes to protect the environment and the public health, safety, and well-being of its citizens. In summary, the plan describes the existing and future solid waste management system, identifying the amounts and types of wastes generated in Tallahatchie County and the current manner in which these wastes are collected, managed, and disposed. The plan addresses the following areas:  
1) The future plans for residential garbage collection and disposal;
2) The solid waste management facilities that will be used, the future plans for those facilities, and plans for any new facilities within the next 20 years;
3) The local provisions for wastes generated by businesses and industries in the county;
4) The management of special wastes such as waste tires, electronics, municipal waste water sludge, certain medical wastes, disaster debris, industrial wastes, and bulky wastes;
5) Plans for addressing the illegal dumping and/or improper disposal of solid wastes;
6) Plans for improving local programs to reduce and recycle wastes; 
7) The public costs of the waste management system for the county and municipalities and the manner of financing those costs; and
8) An implementation schedule for continued efforts to meet the local waste management needs.
9) The Plan approves the construction of a municipal solid waste transfer station to be constructed and operated by the County, at the Central County Barn located at 4932 Mississippi Highway 32 Central, Charleston, Mississippi, upon approval by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality Permit Board.  The service area of the new municipal transfer station will be the entire boundaries of Tallahatchie County.
The County is interested in hearing from the public on the aspects of this plan and invites the public to review the plan and provide comments and input on the manner in which waste management can be improved locally.  Questions related to the plan can be directed to: Anita Greenwood at the Tallahatchie County Courthouse, at 1 Court Sq., Charleston, Mississippi.
