Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     34A-6-1.2.   Solid waste management policy established. The protection of the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of this state and the protection of the environment require the safe and sanitary disposal of solid waste. An effective and efficient solid waste disposal program protects the environment and the public, and provides the most practical and beneficial use of the material and energy values of solid waste. While recognizing the continuing necessity for the existence of landfills, alternative methods of managing solid waste and the reduction in the reliance upon land disposal of solid waste are encouraged. To promote these goals, the following solid waste management hierarchy, in descending order of preference, is established as the solid waste management policy of the state:
             (1)      Volume reduction at the source.
             (2)      Recycling and reuse.
             (3)      Use for energy production, if appropriate.
             (4)      Disposal in landfills or combustion for volume reduction.
     In the implementation of this solid waste management policy, the state shall establish and maintain a cooperative state and local program of project planning, and technical and financial assistance to encourage comprehensive solid waste management.
