The LRSWA is governed by a Board of Directors, made up of two voting members from each county, plus a Management Committee. These groups are responsible to develop, write, review annually and conduct public hearings for the Solid Waste Management Plan, which addresses solid waste handling for the six counties individually and as a group.

The day-to-day operations are overseen by the Regional Coordinator, a staff position. The operating budget comes from "dues" or assessments paid by each county. The budget is adopted annually by the LRSWA Board of Directors and then sent on to each County Commission for final approval.
