What do I do with...?
Using This Site
The What do I do with...? site is intended to serve as a resource for King County residents and businesses seeking to dispose of unwanted materials. By using the search functions on these pages, you can find businesses and organizations that accept a variety of materials for recycling, refurbishing or resale.
Search for a Single Material
To find a single material or multiple materials within the same category, do one of the following:
Search for Multiple Materials
To search for multiple materials within different categories at the same time, use the Advanced Search page. There, indicate whether the waste is generated by a business or residence, select the materials you wish to recycle or dispose and click the search button. Again, the next page will list all the providers that accept the selected materials. Clicking on the name of a particular provider will open a page that lists that provider's contact information and relevant instructions or restrictions.
