The Waste Management Advisory Board (WMAB) was established in 1988 by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) for the purposes of providing citizen input on solid waste management issues facing the County.
The WMAB assists in the development of the County's ten-year waste management plan, considers and recommends waste reduction, recycling and final disposal strategies, reviews capital and operating budgets, and provides recommendations to the BOCC on the selection of consultants and contractors for solid waste projects. The WMAB also hears appeals for exemptions from the Residential Solid Waste Fee levied by the County and for violations and penalties assessed under the County's Mandatory Commercial Source Separation Ordinance.
On December 20, 2016 the Board of County Commissioners approved the amended Waste Management Advisory Board Bylaws.
The Board is comprised of members appointed by:
1) The Board of County Commissioners;
2) Charlotte City Council; and
3) By Municipal Partners (specifically Towns of Mecklenburg County)
a. Charlotte City Council
b. Town of Davidson
c. Town of Cornelius
d. Town of Huntersville
e. Town of Pineville
f. Town of Mint Hill
