2019 Amendment Process

The Solid Waste Management Plan updates the City of Seattle's programs and services to prevent waste, increase recycling and composting, and improve services. The Plan describes how Seattle will manage the City's solid waste over the next 20 years.

We are currently in the process of updating the Plan for 2019. The updated plan will include identifying alternatives to enhance and expand current programs and services. This will include an update of current programs and new data including waste projections. We are also layering in additional details around racial equity, risk and resiliency, and new metrics.

You will have an opportunity to comment on the DRAFT Plan during the second quarter of 2020 via our online public comment form. Check back for more information.
