Governance and Program Structure

governancePrompted by citizen demand, Washington State directed local governments to create plans to manage hazardous wastes produced by households and in small quantities by businesses and other organizations.

In 1991, local governments and agencies in King County established a partnership to manage these wastes regionally. We have been providing services since that time.

The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County is a multi-jurisdictional coalition of agency, city and tribal partners who work together to reduce the threat posed by the production, use, storage and disposal of hazardous materials. 

This About Us Section describes:

  • The Office of the Program Director which coordinates Program operations
