Solid Waste (Garbage)
Public Health monitors permitted landfills, transfer stations, and composting and recycling facilities to make sure they comply with state and local regulations. Public Health also responds to solid waste disposal concerns and works with other agencies to clean-up illegal dumping sites.

In response to a request from Circle C Corporation to terminate the post-closure permit at Circle C Landfill, CCPH staff developed draft criteria to formalize the termination of post-closure process. Following a public comment period and presentation to Clark County's Board of Health on April 26, 2017, CCPH is reviewing the details of the proposed criteria table with the applicant. CCPH staff are currently working with Washington State Department of Ecology staff and Circle C representatives to formally finalize the criteria parameters.
