Waste Management

MAY 1, 2017 - EFFECTIVE DATE OF SAN JUAN COUNTY ORDINANCE REGULATING SINGLE-USE CONSUMER BAGS IN RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS

Washington state has a system of waste management that relies on partnerships among state and local governments and the private sector. State law requires Ecology to develop regulations for solid waste handling and disposal facilities, and a state plan. Local governments are required to develop local plans that align with the state plan and address their needs for managing waste.
