2023 was a challenging year for the Jefferson County Department of Public Works Solid Waste Division.  Post-Covid pandemic staffing levels had fallen to an all-time low and transfer station staff worked hundreds of hours of overtime, we borrowed volunteer staff from the Public Works Roads division, and the City of Port Townsend lent some of their staff in order to minimize temporary closures.
