Lewis County Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC)

About SWAC

The Lewis County Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) serves in an advisory capacity in the development of programs and policies concerning solid waste handling and disposal and to review and comment upon proposed rules, policies, or ordinances prior to their adoption (RCW 70A.205.110). The SWAC also assists Lewis County Solid Waste Utility staff in the development of a five-year “Solid Waste Management Plan” to help guide how Lewis County manages garbage and recycling now, and into the future.

SWAC members are citizens, members of public interest groups, professionals from the business and agricultural community, operators of solid waste collection and recycling companies, and representatives of local governments.
