The Grant County Board of Commissioners is hearing public comments on the phasing out of the county drop box system.
The drop boxes are facilities throughout the county where citizens can dump waste. The waste is then collected by the county and disposed of elsewhere.
The recommendation to phase out the system was given by the Grant County Solid Waste Advisory Committee in response to the system's inability to be self-sustaining.
The meeting will be from 4 to 5 p.m. April 16 at the county courthouse, 35 C St. NW, Ephrata.
