King County is updating its 20-year plan for how to manage garbage and recycling – tell us what you think 

King County, together with its 37 partner cities, has developed a long-term plan that presents strategies for managing waste. Public review and comment is now being sought on the draft Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan (draft plan) and draft Environmental Impact Statement (draft EIS). Public comments on these two far-reaching documents will inform policy maker decisions on how garbage and recycling is managed in King County for the next six to 20 years. 

The public can make their voices heard by completing an online survey, sending an email to the Solid Waste Division, or by attending an upcoming open house.
