Dunn Statement on Landfill Expansion Vote

Summary

“We are long overdue for a long-term plan for how King County will responsibly manage its trash.”

Story

King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn is releasing the following statement concerning today’s passage of legislation that will allow for an expansion of the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill. Dunn voted against it.

“We are long overdue for a long-term plan for how King County will responsibly manage its trash. The County has said many times in the past decades that the landfill was getting full and would close soon. I want to hold them to that. It’s time for a more equitable and environmentally responsible option that protects the health of our communities. The residents of King County deserve better than this.”
