Ownership of the county’s Central, West Vancouver and Washougal waste transfer stations could change hands by the end of 2027. Four ownership options for the three stations, which provide waste disposal and recycling services, were presented to the Clark County Council during a July 26 work session.

Joelle Loescher, program manager for the county’s solid waste operations, said the purchase options were identified as part of a regional solid waste systems study.
