Program Partnership

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.
