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.
