On January 15, 2014, the Cook County Board passed the Solid Waste and Recycling Ordinance. The ordinance calls for a number of initiatives that will benefit the overall environmental health and safety of Cook County residents. The ordinance gives the county new authority to prosecute illegal dumping activities; stipulates minimum operating requirements, fees, and reporting for solid waste and recycling facilities; and creates reporting requirements for waste and recycling haulers which will help the county in recycling, reuse, and waste diversion planning.
