LRI Landfill Permit Modification

We want to hear from you!

Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department received an application from LRI to modify the solid waste permit for the LRI Landfill at 30919 Meridian St. E. in Pierce County.

What the Permit Change Would Mean — The permit modification would change the duration of the permit from a fixed, 10-year permit period to a period of time equal to the remaining operational phase of the LRI Landfill’s life, projected to be another 25 to 35 years. This projection is heavily dependent upon Pierce County’s population growth, economic activity and the success of recycling and diversion programs. This proposed modification is the result of changes in state solid waste regulations.

The requested permit modification would not affect operations, environmental monitoring or other conditions of the LRI Landfill permit. The Health Department will continue to perform formal permit reviews annually, allowing us to update the permit’s conditions as needed.

Where You Come In — While we review LRI’s request, we want to know any concerns you might have. We appreciate your feedback. You can learn more about the current and previous LRI Landfill solid waste permits, solid waste handling regulations and the requested permit modification at the links below.
