The Solid Waste Management Plan describes how Seattle will manage the city’s solid waste over the next 20 years. We finished revising the plan in summer 2013 with updated artwork and chapters below.

The State of Washington Department of Ecology approved the revised plan on June 25, 2013.
Hardcopies will soon be available at the Seattle Public Library, Downtown Branch. We thank all who contributed to the plan’s update and successful approval.
