The Tillamook County Board of Commissioners is accepting applications for three vacancies on the Tillamook County Solid Waste Advisory Committee. One representative would represent the public at large, the second would represent the construction industry, and the third vacancy would represents the forestry or timber industry. Given the importance of recycling in the county, those with varying degrees of experience in the aforementioned fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Solid Waste Advisory Committee advises the Commissioners on issues regarding the management of solid waste in the county, including long range planning, policies and projects, enforcement, permitting and regulations, budget, garbage service, franchises, contracts and rates, waste prevention and recycling.
The Committee consists of nine members, including one representative of the incorporated cities in Tillamook County; one representative each from the dairy farming, timber manufacturing and construction industries; two representatives of the public-at-large, two representatives of the solid waste collection industry, and one representative from a transfer station or organization responsible for marketing recyclables from within the watershed. Committee members serve three-year terms, meets eight to ten times a year, and there is no financial reimbursement.
