Clallam County Solid Waste Management Plan Update

The current Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan (CSWMP) was updated in 2014. The CSWMP reflects the current state of the local solid waste system and assists SWAC and other solid waste stakeholders in solid waste management activities such as making informed recommendations, obtaining solid waste handling permits, and qualifying for Ecology Local Solid Waste Financial Assistance funding or other financial assistance programs.

The cities and county, along with voluntary participation from tribes, are working on an update of the CSWMP to be completed in 2020. Review drafts of the update and find more information on this webpage: Clallam County Solid Waste Management Plan Update.
