The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) provides the planning regions of the state with funds to support local and regional activities related to the implementation of the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan. The funds are intended to support projects that reduce the amount of municipal solid waste introduced to local landfills by establishing recycling programs, waste minimization programs, and composting projects. All pass through funding for FY 16-17 will be used for the Regional Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events (Implementation Project).
