Regional Planning Units and Facilities Descriptions The LSWMPs are developed and implemented by Solid Waste Planning Units. Each unit serves as the management agency for materials handling operations and state-level reporting within the area it covers. The North Country region has five Planning Units, one each for Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton counties, and one that serves Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties as part of the Development Authority of the North Country (DANC). Below is a brief overview of each Planning Unit, including infrastructure and operations within their jurisdiction, as reported in their respective LSWMP and Appendix C of NYSDECâ€™s Beyond Waste. Figure 8â€‘1 (on following page) provides a graphical overview of active and inactive solid waste facilities throughout the region.
