The Local Government Law of 1997 created the legal basis for establishing an institutional framework like a Solid Waste Management Council. By a ministerial decree, the Hebron-Bethlehem Joint Services Council for Solid Waste Management was established. The JSC comprised all the local governments in both Hebron and Bethlehem and the Hebron Governor’s Office, headed by the Mayor of Hebron Municipality. As per April 2008, the JSC has most of the member representatives of the southern area communities which will be served by the proposed landfill and the SWM improvement project.
