Our Policy Team is exploring ways to establish a stewardship program for all moderate risk waste (MRW) in King County. MRW includes household hazardous waste and small quantities of hazardous waste generated by businesses.
An MRW product stewardship program would increase the availability of collection services, collect more MRW, and shift the responsibility for collection and transportation to the manufacturers of MRW products. This would benefit all ratepayers, especially those with limited resources.
Current status: Researching.
