SeaTac Dump Fees and Locations

Do you need to dispose of your junk, yard waste, hazardous materials, or recycling within the city of SeaTac? If so, Bow Lake Transfer Station is your closest option. Luckily, this facility is open to the public as well as commercial junk hauling companies looking to remove junk and recycling waste per ton. Like many transfer stations in King County, you must be able to verify residency to dispose of waste materials on site. Valid means of proving residency include government-issued ID, vehicle registration, or rental agreements.

Residents of Seattle and Milton are not allowed to use the Bow Lake Transfer Station. Instead, these customers must use the hazardous waste drop-off services at the Factoria Recycling facility in Bellevue which is only 21 minutes away from SeaTac.
