Local Governments Working Together for Health and the Environment
The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County (LHWMP) is a regional partnership for all jurisdictions in King County including 38 cities, two tribes and unincorporated King County. LHWMP delivers services through four partner agencies and supports city and tribal hazardous waste work through biennial grants that are available to each jurisdiction.
Program partners work together, drawing on their strengths and expertise to protect public health and the environment by reducing exposure risks from hazardous materials.
LHWMP Coalition Partners
Five coalition partners serve on the Management Coordination Committee which provides oversight, guidance and accountability. LHWMP services are staffed by multi-agency teams.
City, Town and Tribal Government Partners
LHWMP provides grant funding to cities, towns and tribal governments within King County. Funding is used to support hazardous waste collection and to promote using safer alternatives to residents and businesses. LHWMP is working to increase coordination and partnership with cities, towns and tribes and community organizations.
