Solid Waste Division

Division Manager: Margo Gillaspy

 

Welcome to Solid Waste Advisory Committee information site


The Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) consists of 13 voting members representing Skagit County's eight cities and towns, Recyclers, Haulers and Commissioners' Districts 1, 2 and 3 and three non-voting members. Together, members of the SWAC advise Skagit County on all aspects of solid waste management planning, assist Skagit County in the development of solid waste management programs and policies, and review and comment on proposed solid waste management rules, policies or ordinances prior to their adoption.

Currently the SWAC meets during the second week of every other month. 2021 meetings will occur in February, April, June, August, October, and December. If you are interested in attending please email Margo Gillaspy at margog@co.skagit.wa.us


Seeking Representatives
A change in State law (signed by the Governor on March 31, 2016) now requires a representative of the agricultural community to be included on the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. If you are a member of the agricultural community and are interested in assisting county officials in developing programs and policies concerning county-wide solid waste management, we would like to invite you to join the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. We are also looking for a citizen to represent Commissioner District #3. Representatives serve one-year terms.

If you are interested, please submit your name, address, telephone number, and a brief statement of your interest to the below address.
