Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management is a partnership created by Pope and Douglas Counties in 1983. This partnership was created to manage the solid waste stream generated in both counties.

Please take a few moments to explore our site and learn how your garbage is managed, and see how we can help you reduce, reuse, recycle and compost.





 Discarded food/scraps/soiled papers

 make up a huge part of what is found

 in the garabge.  There is a better way

 to manage food waste that also contributes

 to a better environment.  Learn More.










  More Drug Drop-Off Boxes Coming

  In partnership with local law enforcement -

  Pope/Douglas Solid Waste will be setting up

  additional household pharmaceutical/drug

  drop off collection boxes in more communities

 Pope/Douglas and local law enforcement have

 partnered with the Justin Pearson Foundation Fund

 to provide financial assistance for a greatly expanded

 household pharmaceutical/drug drop off program.
