A PUBLIC consultation has been launched over the future of waste planning.
The move comes at a time when Herts County Council is looking at alternatives from using landfill sites.
County councillor Derrick Ashley, executive member for planning and external relations said there were "important decisions" to be made about waste planning.
Cllr Ashley said: "In the past we have taken much of our waste out of the county to be processed.
"This is no longer an option," he said.
He continued that decisions for the future included the potential of waste treatment facilities.
