Snohomish County and private companies work together to ensure garbage disposal is available in cities and unincorporated areas of Snohomish County.
Private garbage haulers collect garbage and recycling from your curb and take it to a county owned and operated transfer station. Many items you think are garbage may actually be recyclable. Please contact your private hauler for specifics on what to recycle and what to dispose of in your curbside garbage.
County residents may also self-haul garbage to a transfer station, for a fee. Please see our Waste Acceptance policy to learn which items are accepted at county facilities, or for more information call (425) 388-3425.
Recycling helps keep garbage rates down and reduces the amount of garbage going to the landfills. County citizens (urban, rural, residential, commercial) have many options for recycling. Please see the Recycling page for more information on convenient recycling.
