Washington County Solid Waste & Recycling Reduced Rate Program (SWRRRP) administered by Community Action

The Solid Waste & Recycling Reduced Rate Program is designed for income qualified customers to pay a reduced service fee. Eligible customers are those who live in unincorporated Washington County, Oregon, in a single-family residence, a duplex, triplex or a quadplex and directly pay for garbage collection service through one of the partnered garbage and recycling companies. Qualified customers will be enrolled into a rate reduction program that will lower your monthly garbage collection rate by 75% per month for 24 months*.

                *Program approval is for a period of 24 months. If the applicant moves, a new application will be required if they remain in unincorporated Washington County. The discounted rate will be applied to the next billing cycle following program approval. Credits are not issued retroactively. Rates are subject to adjustment based on Board or County Commissioner approval.
