Spokane County Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan

Under Washington state law (Chapter 70.95 RCW), each county, in cooperation with cities located within, is required to prepare a coordinated, comprehensive solid waste management plan (SWMP). Solid waste plans provide long-term, environmentally-sound solid waste management guidelines. Solid waste plans in Washington State are required to be reviewed every five years and updated or revised as necessary. Spokane County is currently working with a consulting company called Great West Engineering, Inc. to create the 2020 Spokane County Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan. The Comprehensive plan will guide the solid waste decisions and activities for the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System, which includes the unincorporated County and member jurisdictions.

The updated Draft Spokane County Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan is now available for download. Any comments or questions about the Draft Plan should be directed to Lindsay Chapman, Solid Waste Project Manager at lchapman@spokanecounty.org and at 509-477-7659. 

It is the intent of Spokane County to present the Draft plan to the Solid Waste Advisory Committee for their consideration. Spokane County will then submit the Draft Plan to the Department of Ecology for their review.
