What is the purpose of the Texas SWDA?

The purpose of the Texas SWDA is to safeguard the health, welfare, and physical property of the people and to protect the environment by controlling the management of solid waste, including accounting for hazardous waste that is generated.  

Texas SWDA’s cost-recovery provisions are structured similarly to those in CERCLA, which should likewise be interpreted liberally to give effect to its remedial purpose.  In accordance with that purpose, the Texas SWDA provides mechanisms for the clean-up of solid waste and for both governmental entities and private parties to recover clean-up costs from those responsible for the waste.
