Roles & Responsibilities
The Solid Waste Utility manages the waste from most parts of Clallam County. We are responsible for curbside collection within the City limits of Port Angeles, and for collection and disposal at the Blue Mountain and Regional Transfer Stations. The city contracts with Waste Connections, Inc. for all services except for garbage collection within the city limits and Transfer Station scale operations, which is done by City utility staff.
Solid Waste provides information and educational services for waste reduction, backyard composting, recycling, proper hazardous waste disposal, natural yard care, and how to use finished compost. To receive printed materials, email the Solid Waste Collections Coordinator.
"Choose to Conserve" is the theme of the solid waste reduction and recycling program for the North Olympic Peninsula. The mountains in the logo convey the beautiful environment, and the arrow represents the circular nature of life and the concepts of reduce, reuse, and recycle.
