Information applies only to waste from do-it-yourself construction or demolition projects. When construction debris is mixed with demolition debris, the entire load is deemed demolition debris.

Refer to the Business Disposal & Recycling Guide for help with business waste.
Contact a private company about your options for recycling sorted construction/demolition materials. Materials may include lumber, concrete, asphalt, metal and cardboard. Recycling sorted materials is cheaper than disposal.
Give away, sell, or donate usable, leftover construction materials. Contact a reuse company to verify accepted items and hours.
Demolition debris must be disposed as garbage. Demolished or renovated structures may contain asbestos, lead, mercury, and other dangerous contaminants. It is recommended you hire a certified contractor or inspector to identify, remove, and dispose of hazardous demolition debris.
We recommend all demolition debris be disposed at Olympic View Transfer Station. You must consider the following contaminants before disposal:
Asbestos: You are required to follow Puget Sound Clean Air Agency Regulations or Olympic Region Clean Air Agency Regulations. Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) are only accepted at Olympic View Transfer Station. An appointment is required. Loads will not be accepted without proper packaging, labelling and waste shipment records. Read asbestos disposal instructions.
Mercury: Mercury-containing items cannot be disposed as garbage. These items may include switches, thermostats, and fluorescent lights. Free recycling for mercury-containing items is available to residents. Learn more.
Lead paint: Disturbing materials painted with lead-based paint can cause bodily harm. Learn how to protect your family from lead paint dust (external site).
