Who Are We?

Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District (LSWDD) provides a convenient local facility for solid waste collection with reuse and recycle options, operated in a fiscally, socially, and environmentally responsible manner with a goal to educate and inspire the community to reduce waste.

The San Juan County Council established the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District June 26, 2012, to assume responsibility for solid waste disposal on Lopez Island. The LSWDD assumed full formal control of the solid waste and recycling operation on January 1, 2013. The LSWDD is governed by these goals: to be good stewards of the land by responsibly disposing of our waste, maximizing our recycling, and moving toward a strategy of “Zero Waste.” Read About Us for more info.
