Temporary Restriction on Green Waste

September 15, 2022 - Effective September 21, 2022, Snohomish County will temporarily stop accepting yard debris at all facilities. Due to the amount of refuse on the floor, green waste and wood debris is being contaminated at Snohomish County facilities and must be disposed of as solid waste. This is also contributing to the backlog of waste in the facilities and uses valuable space in containers being transported for disposal in a landfill. The county is encouraging residents to take green waste and wood debris to alternate locations. A list of those local businesses can be found by visiting:

Tire Recycling Event Survey

September 12, 2022 - The Snohomish County Solid Waste Division is researching the need for a future countywide tire recycling event. Division staff has prepared an anonymous public survey to understand interest in a potential event. The data will also be submitted for a possible grant from Ecology to help fund the event.


Standard size vehicle tires, without rims, would be accepted at the free event, which will be limited to Snohomish County residents (businesses would be excluded). The County currently accepts up to five tires per customer for a fee at designated Solid Waste facilities as part of garbage services.


The recycling of old tires is important as it prevents potential negative environmental impacts such as the leaching of chemicals into the environment. Tires also take up a lot of space in landfills. Recycling is beneficial as it creates new products from a limited resource.
