Recycle More. It’s Easy To Do!

Recycling improvements as of June 1

As of June 1, 2014, recycling is easier at many King County transfer and recycling stations. And we are accepting even more materials! See the Recyclable Materials (PDF, 185 K) signs in front of the large blue recycling bins for a list of materials you can place together in the bins.


King County operates multiple facilities for the disposal or recycling of solid waste and household hazardous waste.

King County Transfer Stations

The Solid Waste Division (SWD) operates eight transfer stations and two drop boxes in King County. These facilities accept municipal solid waste from residents and businesses. Limited recycling services are available for residential customers.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facilities

SWD operates one mobile and one fixed household hazardous waste facility. Residents can bring their leftover pesticides, batteries, thinners and solvents and other household hazardous wastes for proper disposal.

Cedar Hills Regional Landfill

The Cedar Hills Regional Landfill is closed to the general public. Waste collected at the transfer stations is transported to the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill for disposal.
