Recycled materials which are collected separately at three sites are transported to a variety of local companies for furtherprocessing. Household Hazardous Waste and moderate risk waste (from local businesses) is collected at the Skagit County Recycling and Transfer Station Collection Facility where it is packed and shipped for recycling or storage in a hazardous waste landfill.
Management Plan History and Purpose
The Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan (CSWMP) was prepared to provide a guide for solid waste activities in Skagit County. This CSWMP addresses solid waste management throughout Skagit County.
The cities had the option to develop their own plan, but chose to participate in the County’s planning process. The various Tribes in Skagit County also have the option to develop their own plans. This CSWMP was prepared through a team effort involving the Skagit County Department of Public Works and the Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC). The SWAC members represent not only the interests of their respective agencies and businesses, but as residents and members of the community they also represent the public’s interest.
