King County continues ongoing communication with landfill neighbors at April 6 meeting
King County has been meeting with the neighbors of its Cedar Hills Regional Landfill since the mid 1980s in order to keep them up to date with landfill activities, provide citizens with an opportunity to provide feedback and share ideas for improving operations.
That communication continues April 6, when the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks’ Solid Waste Division hosts the next Cedar Hills Regional Landfill community meeting, set for 7-9 p.m. at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way NW, Issaquah.
Meeting topics include:
· A proposed new format for community meetings;
· An update on operational activities, plus construction and environmental management activities at the landfill; and
· An update on Bio Energy Washington’s landfill gas-to-energy plant.
The Cedar Hills Regional Landfill community meetings provide an ongoing forum for area residents and King County Solid Waste Division staff to discuss conditions and activities at the landfill. Meetings occur twice a year, or more frequently as needed.
