Washington County Solid Waste

About the Washington County Solid Waste Department

Mission Statement

The mission of Washington County Solid Waste is to manage the solid waste for Washington County residents and commercial entities in a manner that is environmentally sound, cost effective, socially responsible, and safe. WCSW continually works to build relationships with the business community, independent haulers, municipalities, contractors, regulatory authorities, and the general public. Success in these endeavors is accomplished through operations of a sanitary landfill, recycling sites, household electronics and household hazardous waste collection programs, composting program, paint exchange program, and tire recycling program. The knowledge and proper use of these services combined with our public outreach and education helps maintain the quality of life in Washington County now and in the future.
