Vision and Mission
To address the mounting garbage problem, public officials from our region 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.
