Solid Waste Management Plan

Solid Waste Management Plan Graphic

Solid waste management activities in Clark County aim to protect and preserve human health, environmental quality and natural resources through efficient, cost-effective programs and services. The Solid Waste Management Plan provides a guide for solid waste activities in Clark County.

The Clark County Solid Waste program developed the plan with input and review from regional partners and the Solid Waste Advisory Commission (SWAC), which represents interests of businesses, public interest groups and the community. The plan provides information for all existing and proposed solid waste handling facilities, a comprehensive waste reduction and recycling element, and the county’s moderate risk management plan.

Clark County’s current Solid Waste Management Plan was approved by the Washington State Department of Ecology in September 2015. Clark County Solid Waste is currently in the process of updating the plan.

2023 Plan Update

The 2023 update to the Solid Waste Management Plan is underway.  As part of the update, Clark County Solid Waste is working to streamline information in the plan and condense the number of chapters.  The 2023 plan update will include seven chapters.

Draft plan materials will be linked below, as they become available.  All materials are considered drafts until the plan update is approved by the Washington State Department of Ecology.  Approval is expected in late 2023.
