Maintaining clean and beautiful islands requires thoughtful programs that support waste reduction, recycling, composting, and proper waste disposal, in coordination with others. Learn about the County’s efforts to support hazardous waste removal, derelict vessel prevention and removal, community litter cleanup events, recycling and composting, plastics and waste reduction, and solid waste disposal.


Waste management in the County is overseen by the Solid Waste Advisory Committee, who review and guide the activities of the Solid Waste Utility. Members of the committee represent a diversity of interests and Islands. For more information or to get involved, check the latest meeting information here.
