(1) In addition to all enforcement methods (including penalties) available to the County’s Health Officer and the County’s Sheriff in this chapter, those County officials (or their designees) may choose to enforce all state and local laws and regulations applicable to solid waste in a manner consistent with Chapter 20.33 CCC.

(3) Nothing in this section shall be deemed to prevent or hinder any cooperation between the County and the State Department of Ecology and the County’s efforts to enforce the laws and regulations applicable to solid waste.
