In 2016, King County published its first Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) Strategic Plan to ensure fairer outcomes in policy direction, planning, and organizational structures.

In alignment with the county's pro-equity vision, the Solid Waste Division developed its own ESJ Strategic Plan Download PDF 1 MB in 2019, which outlines goal areas specific to some of the division's core business functions, including:

  • Employee hiring, growth and development
  • Rate structures and capital project planning
  • Contracts and procurement
  • Employee training requirements
  • Customer service
  • Community engagement and outreach

The division's plan serves as a blueprint for setting work priorities and holding teams accountable for meeting performance measures around equity and social justice.
