It is composed of up to 7 voting members appointed by the Board of Supervisors including 1 Board of Supervisors member or Planning Commission member from any electoral district.

The Council will work with county officials, government agencies and state lawmakers to communicate ideas and concerns for improving existing laws and future legislation that will reduce litter and increase recycling activities.
