Vision and Mission
To address the mounting garbage problem, public officials from the 36 communities in our area created the West Cook County Solid Waste Agency (WCCSWA). With the assistance of a surcharge on the Hillside landfill and with input from civic and business leaders, area residents, and local environmental groups, WCCSWA examined a number of ways to deal with the garbage problem. After three years of development and extensive public input, a comprehensive, environmentally sound and cost effective plan emerged.
To plan and provide for the efficient and environmentally sound collection, transportation, transfer, processing, treatment, storage, disposal, recovery, and reuse of municipal waste.
