The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) is pleased to welcome its newest Government/Regulatory Agency Member, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Solid Waste Management.
The mission of the Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) is to protect, improve, and promote health and environmental quality through the responsive, effective oversight of waste management activities and the beneficial use of recovered materials. Solid waste may be defined as any useless,unused, unwanted, or discarded materials. Hazardous waste, problem waste, toxic substances, and recyclables may be distinguished from other solid waste. DSWM has established focused programs to address each of these. The Solid Waste Program ensures safe and sanitary processing and disposal of solid waste in Tennessee. It regulates material recovery facilities, transfer stations,and landfills for sanitary or municipal solid waste, industrial waste, farming wastes, and construction and demolition waste, some of which are subject to EPA RCRA Subtitle D. The Solid Waste Program operates under the authority of the Solid Waste Management Act of 1991.
