Lewis County Solid Waste Disposal District No. 1

Pursuant to RCW 36.58.100 et seq., the Lewis County Solid Waste Disposal District (LCSWDD) No. 1, a quasi-municipal corporation, was established by Ordinance 1124 (now LCC 8.15.150) in 1992, after Lewis County and all incorporated cities signed an interlocal agreement to form it. In addition to forming the district, the agreement established flow control, directing all solid waste generated in Lewis County to be disposed of at LCSWDD sites. Representatives from the cities and the County serve as the Executive Advisory Committee to the Disposal District Commissioners, who by statute are the Lewis County Commissioners. The Lewis County Public Works Director serves as clerk of the board. This interlocal agreement was renewed in 2017.

The governing board of the LCSWDD #1 meets at 1:00 p.m. the fourth Monday of each month in the hearing room of the Lewis County Commissioners, second floor of the historic Lewis County Courthouse, 351 N.W. North St., Chehalis, WA 98532. There are times, however, that the LCSWDD #1 will need to alter its schedule. Changes to this schedule will be noted with an astrisk in the table below. The meetings are open to the public.
