Mission

The mission of the Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District is to provide a comprehensive level of Solid Waste Management services to all District residents that strives to be efficient in terms of operations and cost considerations.

History

The Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District (SWCRSWMD) was originally created in May of 1989 under the authority of Act 870 of 1989 as one of eight “Districts” in the State of Arkansas.  Act 870 originally named the districts as “Regional Solid Waste Planning Boards”.  Each Board was given specific powers and duties as provided in Act 870.  Some of these duties included preparation of “Regional Solid Waste Needs Assessments” and issuance of “Certificates of Need” to applicants for Solid Waste Disposal Facility permits within their jurisdictions.  Act 752 of 1991 renamed the Solid Waste Planning Districts created by Act 870 as “Regional Solid Waste Management Districts”.  Each district was to be governed by a Regional Solid Waste Management Board.  Act 752 expanded the powers and duties of the districts, as well as allowing the boundaries of the districts to be modified.  Waste tires, composting, recycling and hauler licensing requirements were included in the responsibilities added to the districts as a result of Act 752 of 1991.  The ten counties of the West Central Arkansas Planning and Development District constituted the original West Central Arkansas Regional Solid Waste Planning Board.  The original ten counties merged into other Regional Solid Waste Management Districts or formed single county Districts at various times.  The current boundaries of the SWCRSWMD consist of the three county area of Clark, Garland and Hot Spring Counties.
