Late updated: 06/25/2019

In December 2014, the Department of Ecology approved the final draft of the 2014 Update of the Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan (CSWMP). 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 Coordinated Prevention Grant funding or other financial assistance programs. This plan was prepared with participation from representatives of the cities, tribes, waste and recycling collectors, citizens and many other stakeholders; resolutions adopting the plan were approved by the Board of County Commissioners, the cities of Port Angeles, Sequim, and Forks, and supported by the Makah tribe.
