Secure Your Load

Vehicles arriving with unsecured loads at public or private transfer stations in King County can be charged an unsecured load fee.

It is estimated that charitable organizations collect only 25% of the 4 million tons of used textiles discarded annually in the United States. In an effort to keep these materials out of the landfill, King County is partnering with Northwest Center, a local non-profit agency, to offer textile recycling at the Cedar Falls, Enumclaw, Houghton, Renton, Shoreline (formerly First Northeast) and Vashon transfer stations. Textile collection bins are located in the free primary recycling areas at each station. To find additional companies and organizations that accept textiles for recycling, visit the What Do I Do With…? site.

Textiles accepted at participating King County transfer stations:

  • Reusable Clothing
  • Bedding (No Mattresses)
  • Boots
  • Curtains
  • Fabric
  • Linens
  • Shoes
  • Stuffed Animals
  • Area Rugs
