Looking for the latest about San Juan County's solid waste operation?

Then the county Department of Public Works believes it can satisfy your curiosity: alerts and updates by email.

Public Works has set up an email subscription service to provide islanders with information about upcoming changes to the solid waste system. Signup online at: http://www.co.san-juan.wa.us/mail/optin.aspx.

Signing up is a simple, one-step process, and an effective tool to stay in tune, according to Public Works Director Frank Mulcahy.

"We expect this update service will help keep people well-informed as we approach an unprecedented change in the county’s approach to handling solid waste and recycling," Mulcahy said in press release about the email service.

Mulcahy said the email alerts will ensure that subscribers, those who signup for the service, will be kept current with:

transition timeline updates.

Service changes for the transfer stations or the route collection system.

New developments in the system, such as ordinance changes and milestones reached in privatizing the transfer stations.

Notices of upcoming special events and meetings-Waste reduction education opportunities and "Zero Waste" sustainable event assistance.

Send comments or suggestions about the email service or Solid Waste communications in general to Elizabeth Anderson, at elizabetha@sjcpublicworks.org.
