Dunn proposes waste-to-energy alternative to Cedar Hills Landfill

This week, I introduced legislation that would establish an advisory committee to research how King County could build a waste-to-energy facility as an alternative to the existing Cedar Hills Landfill. The committee would be tasked with creating a plan that covers all elements of how to transition seamlessly from a landfill to a waste-to-energy facility.

My goal is to accelerate King County's planning process for closing the landfill and implementing a new waste disposal method that is more environmentally friendly, as well as cheaper.
