Cass County Farming / Agriculture Waste and Recycling Survey

We need your feedback!

Cass County is currently in the process of updating and revising the 1994 Solid Waste Plan.  This will provide a blueprint to follow for the next 10 years for a comprehensive approach to be sustainable, based on sound ecological and economic principles.  The end plan will seek to provide recommendations to the County and Communities to mitigate disposal costs and increase economic benefits and opportunities through better utilizing wasted resources.

We recognize that farming and agricultural properties face a unique set of circumstances and challenges.  We also know that no plan will achieve its stated goals without the support of the communities involved and so we would appreciate if you could take a couple of moments to answer the questions below.  Answers can be given anonymously, or you may fill in your details at the end of the survey if you would like to be kept updated with the progress.


Funding has been provided for the development of this plan through the Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative Grant Program, Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
