Thurston County Hazardous Waste Plan Update

​OLYMPIA -- Thurston County residents are invited to help update the county's Hazardous Waste Plan.  The Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Department's Environmental Health Division is updating the local plan.  The Washington State Hazardous Waste Management Act requires counties to have plans for managing hazardous materials produced by households and small businesses.  The last "Hazardous Waste Plan for Thurston County " was adopted in 1998, and is in need of revision.  To assist the county in this process, a stakeholder group is meeting monthly.  If you are interested in participating in this group as a citizen representative, or if you would like more information, call 360-754-4111or see http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/health/ehhw/hwplan/index.html. Residents may also visit the website to submit comments and questions.
