The Solid Waste Advisory Council (SWAC) is comprised of citizens who represent various areas throughout Benton County. SWAC is a advisory committee for the Board of Commissioners on all solid waste issues for Benton County.

SWAC meetings are open to the public and are normally held at the Benton County Avery Office, 360 Avery Ave, Corvallis, upstairs conference room.  At this time we are meeting virtually through an online portal called Go To Meetings.  Meetings take place the 4th Wednesday of each month and start at 6:00 pm.  For information on our next meeting, call 541-766-6841.
