The Solid Waste Advisory Committee serves in an advisory and technical capacity to Board on matters relating to how the county manages solid waste disposal and recycling services. Committee members provide feedback and make recommendations regarding solid waste policies, regulations and programs, as well as the operation of the county’s transfer station in St. Helens. The new members will also assist in updating the county’s twenty-year solid waste management plan, which is currently undergoing revisions. The plan is a long-range strategy on how the county will manage garbage, use methods to reduce, reuse and recycle trash, and manage regional disposal sites and programs.
