The position will be open until a suitable candidate is found, according to a commission press release. 

“The SWAC assists the commissioners in the development of programs and policies concerning solid waste handling and disposal, in the preparation of solid waste management plans and by reviewing and commenting on proposed rules, policies or ordinances relating to solid waste prior to their adoption,” the press release said.

Members mostly review documents and attend meetings. The position is unpaid.
