A seven member board governs the Bi-County Solid Waste Management System. Jay Albertia is the current Chairman of the Board.
Bi-County employs four people who are certified to operate a landfill. The director is a certified manager of landfill operations and is designated as a landfill specialist. Supervisors have completed the state landfill operators certification program.
