We generate an impressive amount of "stuff." Caring for our environment means making sure the stuff we don't use, need, or want anymore is properly disposed of or, whenever possible, recycled. Conserving resources and protecting the environment are the primary goals of the county's Recycling/Solid Waste program. The program contracts with private companies for recycling collection, sorting, processing and marketing, and solid waste transfer and disposal services.

Solid Waste Management Plan
The purpose of the solid waste management activities in Clark County is to protect and preserve human health, environmental quality and natural resources through efficient, cost-effective programs and services.
The Solid Waste Management Plan (Plan) was prepared to provide a guide for solid waste activities in Clark County. The Plan addresses recent changes while also looking forward to the future needs of the County.
The contents of this Plan have been prepared in accordance with requirement and intent of RCW 70.95.090. This Plan also incorporates the County’s Moderate Risk Management Plan as required by RCW 70.105.220. The Plan was developed through a team effort by Clary County, the cities and town, and the Solid Waste Advisory Commission (SWAC). The SWAC members represented the interests of their agencies, businesses and public interest groups. As members of the community they also represented the public’s interest.
The plan has been updated and reviewed by the Department of Ecology. More >>
