Welcome to the San Juan County Solid Waste Website

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.
