Solid Waste Planning
Planning for services and infrastructure to meet our waste management needs is critical to provide adequate and cost-effective programs to citizens and businesses throughout the county.
The City of Walla Walla plays a unique role in Walla Walla County as it is the owner/operator of the landfill which serves much of the county's population. Under an Interlocal agreement with the County, the City is the designated planning and outreach lead for solid waste programs.
Walla Walla County Solid Waste Management Plan
All counties and cities in Washington are required under Washington State law (RCW 70.95) to have a solid waste management plan that outlines how waste management needs are going to be met over a 20 year planning horizon. The plan takes into consideration such factors as population growth and types of industries producing waste that requires management.
Solid Waste Management Plan – 2013 Update
Walla Walla County and the incorporated jurisdictions have chosen to meet their waste planning requirement by participating in a joint Walla Walla County Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). The updated SWMP is now available for public review and comments until October 31. In addition to the PDF version below, copies of the Plan are available at the following locations throughout Walla Walla County:
Walla Walla County Commissioners Office - 314 W. Main Street, Walla Walla
College Place Public Works Office - 625 S. College Avenue, College Place
The Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) is comprised of 11 members representing local governments, stakeholder industries and groups, and citizens of Walla Walla County. Members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to three-year terms. RCW 70.95 also requires each county to establish a SWAC.
The SWAC's purpose is to evaluate the waste management needs of the entire county and work with staff to develop and update the Solid Waste Management Plan.
