ADEQ, Solid Waste districts to hold meeting


The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has planned a series of meetings across the state, including in Pine Bluff, to discuss the proposed update to the Statewide Solid Waste Management Plan.

The Pine Bluff meeting will be 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, at Southeast Regional Solid Waste Management, 721 S. Walnut St.

ADEQ and representatives from business, industry, government, consulting, environmental and resource management entities have been working since mid-2011 to develop recommendations for the 10-year plan update. The meeting will include a presentation on the recommendations that resulted from that effort.
