Solid Waste Planning

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 Advisory Committee

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.
