[ARCHIVED] City of Port Angeles Solid Waste Update

COPA Logo - COPA Text - Blue background

In the Spring of 2021, the City of Port Angeles took action to terminate its contract with Waste Connections Incorporated (WCI) for services provided relative to municipal solid waste. This decision was made with the understanding that the only way the City could provide excellent service and mitigate large rate instability due to increases demanded by WCI, was to terminate that contract and perform these services in house. Following that decision, a lengthy negotiation and arbitration process delayed the contractual termination process.   

Following resolution of those issues, the City is pleased to announce that it will begin operations of the Regional Transfer Station as of March 1st 2022. In addition, the City will also begin performing residential yard waste and recycle services. After many years of these services being performed by a subcontractor, the City is excited to begin performing these services in-house. We anticipate this change will provide exceptional public service as well as rate stability over the coming years that would not have been possible by continuing the WCI contract. 

Over the coming weeks City residents will receive new recycle and yard waste containers provided by the City, notice different trucks picking up your recycle and yard waste, as well as some new friendly faces, and the City could not be more excited to get started. Additionally, the City will be releasing further details regarding service container delivery and operations in the coming weeks. At anytime, you can reach us at 360.417.4800 or publicworks@cityofpa.us. We appreciate your patience as these services transition and look forward to providing these services to you starting March 1st.
