Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is responsible for planning for the future of solid waste in Johnson County and the development of the Solid Waste Management Plan.

Staff also inspect and monitor solid waste facilities located within Johnson County, and license the trash and recycling haulers that provide these services to residents.

Planning efforts are assisted by the Solid Waste Management Committee, made up of representatives from cities and industry professionals.
