King County Helps to Dispose of Wood Debris in the Wake of Recent Snow Storms

Dear neighbor:

Large swaths of King County residents experienced power outages last week due to heavy snow fall and freezing rain.  In order to assist with recovery efforts, King County is offering its residents the opportunity to dispose of wooden debris left behind from damaged trees and falling branches.

Free wood debris recycling for King County residents will be available on Jan. 28-29, and again on Feb. 4-5 at four locations:

  • The Shoreline, Enumclaw and Cedar Falls solid waste facilities. For directions and hours, visit https://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste.

  • At Kent’s Russell Road Park, 24400 Russell Rd., Kent. Clean wood debris will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The collection sites and events are exclusively for wood debris from the recent storms. Stumps, logs and limbs no longer than six feet in length are allowed – no brush, leaves, grass clippings, sod or soil can be accepted. These events are open to all King County residents. People bringing wood debris are reminded to secure their loads.

King County residents have several additional storm debris disposal options available, including curbside recycling (yard waste cart) and commercial recycling companies that charge a fee for their service, but may prove to be more convenient for some residents.

In addition, the City of Enumclaw is providing two ways to dispose of debris. This service is available to Enumclaw residents only.

1. North Parking Lot of Expo Center - 45224 284th Ave. SE - Mon-Fri 8am-4pm; Sat 8am-5pm; Sun 10am-4pm.  Duration: January 24th through February 10th.  Size Requirements: Wood debris only - 6-foot maximum length and 6-inch maximum diameter.

2. City residents may place limbs & branches from their property at the curb and the City will collect it. All debris left at the curb must meet the same size requirements set forth above for the drop-off site – no longer than 6 feet in length and no larger than 6 inches in diameter.

More information on Enumclaw's wood debris disposal efforts can be found at this site.

King County storm debris disposal information is available online at https://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/, or by calling the recycling hotline at 206-296-4466 or 1-800-325-6165 ext. 64466.
