Lewis County Solid Waste along with funding from the Department of Ecology and The Department of Public Work's, operates a litter program. This program cleans up illegal dump sites and litter along the county roads. This program has been very successful, and has been ongoing for many years in Lewis County and utilizes the labor from The Lewis County jail which allows the offenders the opportunity to give back to our community.
The Litter crew consists of an inmate supervisor and minimum risk offenders/trustees from the Lewis County jail. Solid Waste works very closely with the Sheriff's office and Jail administrators to keep this program operating and help keep Lewis County highways and illegal dump sites litter free.
Solid Waste along with the Public Works department also sponsors a litter crew from Reliable Enterprises that consists of a Supervisor and 4 developmentally disabled workers that keeps litter picked up along County roads.
