Hazardous Waste Site Review Committee Facilitation

The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center served as the Facilitator for the Hazardous Waste Site Review Committee. The Site Review Committee was required by statute for proposals to install and operate a hazardous waste management facility in Nebraska. The Committee reviewed a proposal by Heritage Disposal and Storage, LLC for a waste management facility near Alda, NE. In reviewing the proposal, the Committee was responsible for considering the following:

  • Economic Considerations
  • Function of the Facility
  • Technology Considerations
  • Site Characteristics
  • Environmental Quality
  • Transportation
  • Emergency Situations
  • Regulation and Enforcement

This process was a unique opportunity for the Committee and the public to review and critically assess the feasibility of the proposed facility and its impact on the community.
