Thank you voters | Letters

Thank you to the voters of Lopez Island for approving Prop 1 to help fund our island’s ongoing solid waste and recycling operation – the Lopez Dump. The approved $105,000 levy covers nearly 25 percent of operating expenses for the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District. This levy is integral to our operation, allowing us to keep a clean and tidy site, free recycling, affordable garbage rates, and supporting cleanliness islandwide. LSWDD has worked hard in its five years to remain one of the most efficient and effective recycling organizations in the northwest. Our sorting and baling operation is what other solid waste operators now aspire to amidst a global shutdown of the commingled recycling industry. Our customers, volunteers, youth and voters all deserve a huge round of applause for helping make the Lopez Dump such an amazing community resource. Thank you!

Paul Andersson
