Let RCAP assist you in arranging funding for your community projects, assure that all requirements are being met, and help form entities including sewer districts and water corporations.

Solid Waste

Without a solid waste management plan and a commitment to implementing it, communities can be buried under a mountain of garbage and be out of compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. RCAP is here to help!
