Washington County strives to be a governmental leader in reducing, reusing, and recycling waste in business operations. Not only is this good for the environment, but the county shows savings of public dollars in energy and waste disposal costs. The county has passed board resolutions to address environmentally best practices within county operations.
Additional information about how the county will continue to be a leader in reducing waste and costs can be found in the Waste Management Master Plan (PDF). This plan guides the county’s activities and establishes objectives for the next 20 years.
