Due to jurisdictional-related problems, low populations and vast distances between population centers, and extremely seasonal waste generation characteristics, the disposal of solid waste in the Blackfeet Indian Reservation - Glacier National Park area has presented various problems for the past several years. This report presents an analysis of the current problems confronting local officials in the area, and alternate solutions to the problems that exist. The solid waste management plan summarized in the report recommends that the existing non-licensed disposal sites in the area should be closed. In addition, the existing 'Green Box' container system should be expanded to all areas encompassed by the study, and all wastes should ultimately be disposed of at either of two licensed landfills in the area. The plan also recommends that a Policy Board consisting of representatives from the Blackfeet Tribe, Glacier County, the Town of Browning, and the National Park Service should be formed to implement the plan and make all necessary decisions concerning the management, financing and operation of the proposed waste disposal system. Ultimately, it is recommended that all financial arrangements should be conducted through the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council, primarily because most of the existing waste disposal facilities and equipment are currently owned and operated by the Tribe.
