Public Invited to Comment on the Preliminary Draft of the Solid Waste and Moderate Risk Waste Management Plan


The Preliminary Draft of the Solid Waste and Moderate Risk Waste Management Plan is available for public viewing and comments. Copies can be viewed at the Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Camano Island, Freeland, Langley, and Clinton Libraries, the Public Works Department, County Commissioners’ Office, Oak Harbor and Langley City Halls, Coupeville Town Hall and here.

This Island County Solid Waste and Moderate Risk Waste Management Plan is an update to the previous plan that was prepared in 2014. Periodic updates to county solid waste plans are required by Washington State law. This plan was prepared with the assistance of an advisory committee that included representatives of the cities and towns in Island 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 cities, town, and Island County.

Please submit your comments on the plan to the Island County Solid Waste Manager by 4:00 pm on July 31, 2019. Verbal comments will be accepted at a public meeting to be held on July 24, 2019 at 6:00 pm in the Commissioners' Hearing Room located at 1 NE 6th Street, Coupeville, WA. Otherwise comments must be provided in writing by hard copy or email. If mailed, the comments must be sent to Island County Solid Waste Manager, P.O. Box 5000, Coupeville, WA 98239 and must be postmarked on or before July 31, 2019. If by email, comments must be sent to joanthag@co.island.wa.us and received by 4:00 pm on July 31, 2019.
