Solid Waste Management

Overview

In an effort to reduce waste generation and risks of waste/vector-related disease and harmful environmental effects of improperly disposed waste, BECC works with communities along the border to expand, improve, and manage solid waste services.

By supporting border communities in improving municipal solid waste management, BECC addresses the environmental and human health concerns related to improperly handled solid waste and helps improve the quality of life of border residents.

Projects range from construction of transfer stations and closure of dumpsites to providing the necessary equipment to improve the efficiency of collection service.  BECC along with project sponsors implement the necessary actions required to improve the comprehensive management of municipal solid waste resulting in a positive impact for the community.
