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.
LHWMP Coalition Partners
Program partners work together in multi-agency teams, drawing on their strengths and expertise to protect public health and the environment by reducing exposure risks from hazardous materials. Implemented through a multi-jurisdictional Management Coordination Committee (MCC), five coalition partners serve on the MCC providing oversight, guidance and accountability. The four partner agencies providing services and the Sound Cities Association make up the MCC coalition partners.
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.
