San Juan County Solid Waste
San Juan County releases a Request for Proposals July 18 to lease the San Juan Island solid waste site - the Town-owned Sutton Road property currently used for self-haul and an adjacent undeveloped property owned by the County.
Any vendor leasing the site would have the option to keep self-haul operating, as it is now, for up to a year after the contract is signed. The vendor would be responsible for transport and disposal.
Continuing self-haul, beyond the one year after the contract begins, would require improvements to the site. State health regulations require that solid waste is disposed of at appropriate and legal facilities. It should be noted the RFP does not require the contractor to provide self-haul.
