The Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government Waste Management District has preparedthis Five year Solid Waste management Plan as required by Kentucky Revised Statutes 224.43.The Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government Waste Management District was createdpursuant to KRS 109.041, 109.115, and 67.083 and is charged under Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances Chapter 51.106 the responsibility for submitting, ammending and/or updating onbehalf of Metro Government the 1987 Cabinet approved solid waste management plan and anyand all subsequent plans. The District responsibility includes all areas within the geographicalboundaries of the county.The plan has been adopted by resolution by the 109 Board as part of its responsibity and theCity of Jeffersontown as a class II city.The plan is veiwed as
a new beginning to the county’s approach to solid waste management
 where traditional solid waste management where the majority of waste is disposed of usinglandfilling is transformed into resource recovery where the majority is recycled, composted, orused as fuel as a subsitute for virgin materials.The highlight of the plan is an initiative funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies to bring innovationand breakthrough ideas. The grant has allowed Metro Government to hire a full time

and forward thinking. This teamhas already reached out and brought together key cities from across the country that have high
recycling rates and local stake holders to develop a “Recycling Charter”. This Charter has set
ambitious short and long term goals to increase the recycling rate 50% in three years and to90% in thirty years.
