The Northern Kentucky Solid Waste Management Area (NKSWMA) is an alliance of Boone, Campbell and Kenton Counties in Northern Kentucky to manage solid waste. The Area was created with the goal of better coordinating regional solid waste programs such education, cleanup events, recycling events, and reports as well as improving communication between the three counties.

The Area is governed by the NKSWMA Governing Body, consisting of the Judge Executive and one Commissioner from each County ( click here for more information on the Governing Body). The Area also receives advice and technical expertise from the NKSWMA Technical Advisory Committee which also serves at the Litter Abatement Committee for the Area.

The Area has evolved into a tight-knit organization with the counties working to cooperatively manage solid waste within their boundaries. Each county is held accountable for the activities it performs. Administrative duties such as regional reporting and Solid Waste Plan compilation as well as the point of contact for the NKSWMA is held by the Boone County Solid Waste Coordinator.
