Residents can ask questions about the landfill gas-to-energy facility near Issaquah at a public meeting Tuesday.

The facility is part of the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill located just south of Issaquah in rural King County. Representatives from the King County Solid Waste Division and Bio Energy Washington, the landfill gas-to-energy facility’s owner and operator, plan to discuss the operation of the facility and answer questions.

The meeting is scheduled for 7-9 p.m. in the parish hall at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 220 Mountain Park Blvd. S.W.

The landfill gas-to-energy facility largest landfill is among the largest landfill gas processing facilities in the nation. The facility uses gas from decomposing garbage buried at the landfill, cleans the gas and transfers the resulting product to a nearby natural gas pipeline.

The project has raised questions from nearby residents concerned about the noise the facility produces.
