Recycling & Garbage fees increase for 2020

Credit Shoreline Transfer Station

An increase in rates that fund hazardous wastes program services in King County will affect garbage fees charged at King County solid waste facilities in 2020.

Effective January 1, 2020, fees charged at King County Solid Waste Division recycling and garbage transfer facilities will incur a small increase.

In 2018, the King County Board of Health approved an increase in the “moderate risk waste surcharge” that funds hazardous waste programs. The fee for a load up to 320 pounds will increase $0.10; the per-ton fee increase is $0.26. The same increases also apply to the fees charged charitable organizations.

The fee table and footnotes are provided by King County Solid Waste Division. If you have questions, please call the Division at 206-477-4466.
