Another cause of missed pickup is incorrect cart placement: too close to a fence, car, or other object, or facing the wrong direction. Allow 4 feet of clearance around your garbage cart. Overfilled carts (with the lid open) cannot be emptied.
For missed collection call the office after 3 p.m. on your collection date. A small fee may apply depending on the circumstance. Please do not wait 2-3 weeks before calling.
You transport your empty refrigerator to the Regional Transfer Station metal pile. Either the doors must be removed, or it needs to be loaded in a way that allows for quick inspection. The Freon will be removed and the metal will be recycled (fees apply).
Scrap metal is bailed and household recycling is loaded into a separate trailer; both are shipped to Tacoma for further processing and then is shipped to markets in this country and worldwide. Hazardous waste is shipped to Seattle area for reuse, recycling, or proper disposal. Yard waste is composted on site and sold as Garden Glory Compost. All other waste is compacted and shipped out by truck daily to the railhead in Centralia, and then shipped by train to Roosevelt Landfill in Eastern Washington.
