Solid Waste Management Advisory Council
The Solid Waste Management Advisory Council Advisory Council (SWMAC) serves as the initial rulemaking body for the LPD and operates under the authority of the Oklahoma Solid Waste Management Act. The SWMAC holds public hearings, reviews solid waste issues, and provides expertise about various solid waste issues. All solid waste rules and regulations must first be reviewed and approved by the SWMAC before being recommended to the Environmental Quality Board. Once approved by the Environmental Quality Board, the rules proceed to the State Legislature and the Governor for final approval. The Council is composed of nine members who represent specific areas of expertise as described by 27A O.S. § 2-2-201(E), the Oklahoma Environmental Quality Code.
