Solid Waste Division Comprehensive Plan Update

June 30, 2021 - Snohomish County Solid Waste Division is inviting Snohomish County residents, businesses and other interested parties to review and submit comments on the draft Snohomish County Comprehensive Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Plan

This
Snohomish County Comprehensive Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Plan is an update to the previous plan that was prepared in 2013. Periodic updates to county solid waste plans are required by Washington State law. This plan was prepared with the assistance of the County’s Solid Waste Advisory Committee that included representatives of the cities and towns in Snohomish County, as well as citizens and business representatives and other stakeholders. The intent of this plan is to guide solid waste activities, including recycling, waste collection and disposal.  

This plan is also being reviewed by the Washington Department of Ecology and other state agencies. Comments received from all sources will be considered in the production of the next draft, which will be prepared later this year and then offered for adoption by the participating cities, towns, and Snohomish County.

Please submit your comments on the plan to Jo-Anne Antoun, Project Specialist IV by 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 13, 2021.

Verbal comments will be accepted at a public meeting to be held August 4th at 6:30 PM via Microsoft Teams. Please contact Jo-Anne Antoun by July 30 for meeting login information.

Otherwise, comments must be provided in writing by hard copy or email. If mailed, the comments must be sent to Snohomish County Solid Waste, Attn: Jo-Anne Antoun, Project Specialist IV, 3000 Rockefeller Ave, MS 607, Everett, WA 98201 and must be postmarked on or before August 13. If by email, comments must be sent to jo-anne.antoun@snoco.org and received by 5:00 p.m. on August 13.
