Illegal dumping hotline

Thank you for helping to cleanup illegal dumping. Illegal dumping is the improper disposal of waste. The division manages the Illegal Dumping Hotline around the clock, and maintains the database that tracks all calls and online complaints received. A computer application determines what jurisdiction should receive the complaint based on type and location, and sends the jurisdiction an email with the complaint information attached. Please provide as much detailed information as possible. Your report can be made anonymously, however doing so may result in no action being taken. Asterisks denote fields that must be completed.

If you have any questions please call the King County Illegal Dumping Hotline at 206-296-SITE (7483) or toll free at 1-866-431-7483, TTY Relay: 711.
