County encourages residents to use yard debris recyling businesses following windstorm

Recent windstorms have brought down trees and branches, creating excess yard debris for Snohomish County residents. There are many local composting businesses ready to accept yard debris. Due to ongoing rail and container issues, Snohomish County Solid Waste transfer stations and drop boxes are temporarily not accepting these items. This change does not affect curbside pickup.

“We know that many people were inundated with yard debris after our recent windstorm. Eleven business locations in or near Snohomish County are accepting yard debris, and we want to make sure people know that there are good local options,” Snohomish County Public Works Director Kelly Snyder said. “Make sure you check the location, as well as days and hours of operation, before you travel to drop off your load of debris.”

Snohomish County continues to work closely with Republic Services, Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), Waste Management, and local solid waste haulers to find a resolution to ongoing rail service and container issues.

County officials continue to urge residents to reduce, reuse and recycle reusable items. Donating household items, books or clothing that are reusable to thrift stores or other outlets such as selling on community classifieds or market-place community groups online are always a better alternative than throwing them away.
