King County to answer landfill questions at Issaquah meeting
October 18, 2011
Residents from areas near the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill can offer feedback and receive updates at a public meeting soon.
The agency responsible for the landfill, the King County Solid Waste Division, is hosting a community meeting from 7-9 p.m. Oct. 25 at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way N.W.
Meeting attendees can learn about landfill operations, plus construction and environmental projects at the 920-acre facility. Officials also plan to discuss the Bio Energy Washington landfill-gas-to-energy facility at the landfill site.
The facility prompted noise complaints from nearby residents last year.
The landfill sprawls across unincorporated King County between Issaquah and Maple Valley.
King County officials started meeting Cedar Hills Regional Landfill neighbors more than 25 years ago to offer information and collect feedback.
The community meetings provide a forum for area residents and Solid Waste Division staff to discuss activities, conditions and problems related to the landfill.
