Description During the 2007 legislative session, lawmakers directed the department to assess opportunities to use yard waste and land-clearing debris, instead of burning it, and recommend best management practices that would work in smaller communities.

The findings and recommendations are contained in the report titled “Best Management Practices of Vegetative Solid Wastes for Urban Growth Areas of Less than 5,000 Population.”
