Deschutes County is seeking applicants for a new Solid Waste Advisory Committee.
Committee members will provide input on how Deschutes County processes solid waste after Knott Landfill reaches its capacity. The County is currently conducting a study that will outline different disposal options. The committee will evaluate the economic and environmental impacts of those options and will examine other aspects of the solid waste system, such as collection, recycling and transfer.
Solid Waste Advisory Committee members will be expected to attend one meeting per month and will not be paid for their time. Residents with experience in finance, engineering and transportation are encouraged to apply.
Residents who are interested in serving on the Solid Waste Advisory Committee should send a letter (by mail, e-mail or hand delivery) explaining their interest and any related experience by Friday, July 28, at 5 p.m. to:
Deschutes County Department of Solid Waste
C/O Timm Schimke
61050 SE 27th Street
Bend, OR 97702
For more information about the Solid Waste Advisory Committee, please call Department of Solid Waste Director Timm Schimke at (541) 317-3177.
