Snohomish County’s North County Recycling and Transfer Station in Arlington Closed October 7-9, 2016
Facility closed for three days to replace trash compactors
EVERETT, Wash., September 22, 2016 – The Snohomish County Public Works Solid Waste Division will temporarily close its North County Recycling and Transfer Station (NCRTS) from October 7-9, 2016. During the closure, the facility’s compactors will be replaced. Residents and businesses who had planned to visit the facility on those days should instead use alternate recycling and transfer stations.
The facility received upgraded scales and a new scale house earlier this year. These improvements are the first major updates made to the facility in more than 30 years. All of the work done at NCRTS is being completed with the goal of future expansions at the facility. The upgrades are funded by transfer station customer fees.
For information on alternate locations, fees, NCRTS normal operation hours or about the closure, visit www.snoco.org/solidwaste or call 425-388-3425.
