Technical Approach

Kittitas County completed a step-by-step process to find the best site for the new transfer station. The County worked with a team of consultants and consulted with the community throughout the siting process to ensure that the public's feedback was incorporated into the decision and a location that best meets technical and community criteria was chosen.
