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.
What is solid waste?
Solid waste is household garbage, yard debris (leaves, weeds, prunings, grass clippings, brush and woody materials), and demolition and construction debris (old lumber, pallets, roofing, and so on).
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. Prior to finalizing the criteria and presenting it to the applicant, CCPH staff will consider written public comments regarding the request to terminate facility as part of the review process. Written public comments regarding the proposal must be received by the department on or before April 20, 2017. Public Comments will be presented to Clark County’s Board of Health (BOH) prior to the Wednesday, April 26, 2017 regularly scheduled meeting. Citizens are invited to attend the BOH meeting on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. at Clark County Public Service Center, 6th Floor Hearing Room, 1300 Franklin St, Vancouver.
