Clark County is seeking applicants for volunteer roles that advise on solid waste issues.
The county Solid Waste Advisory Commission, which represents public interest groups and advises the Clark County Council, is seeking applicants. The three-year term would begin immediately.
The commission meets at 6 p.m. on the first Thursday of February, May, August and November at the county Center for Community Health, 1601 E. Fourth Plain Blvd., Vancouver. Commissioners represent a variety of interests — including the solid waste industry, business interests, agriculture, and city and county residents — and discuss issues such as recycling, garbage collection, landfills, transfer stations and waste-reduction programs.
Applicants may send a resume and letter of interest to Tina Redline at the Clark County Manager’s Office, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver 98666-5000, by email at Tina.Redline@clark.wa.gov or fax to 360-397-6058. Letters of interest should address how applicants would represent public interest groups, and include personal or professional experience related to solid waste, as well as a plan for the future of solid waste management in the county.
Applications are due at 5 p.m. Nov. 8. More information is available on the Solid Waste Advisory Commission website.
