The Pierce County Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) has two openings for representatives from the business community. The SWAC meets at least quarterly and helps shape local recycling and waste reduction programs. In 2012 the Pierce County Solid Waste Division is focusing on improving single- and multi-family recycling programs, increasing business recycling opportunities, and completing a food waste Best Management Practices project. The advisory committee is an integral component in the success of these projects.
Toward the end of the year the SWAC will help create the framework for future programs when work begins on updating the comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan. Membership would begin in April, 2012.
