Transfer Station Disposal

If the junk is non-reusable or recyclable we will take it to the local transfer station where the junk is then trucked to a landfill. Some of the recycling centers sort out the items so that it doesn't all just end up in the landfill. Give us a call at 1-877-404-5865 to have your junk hauled to your local transfer station.

Recycling in 2019 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31)

Junk Recycling 2020

This past year from January 1st 2020 to December 31st 2020 we have recycled approximately 73% of the junk we’ve removed.

2,864 tons of the 3,944 tons we have picked up has been disposed of sustainably so that the majority of what we haul away is able to be converted into reusable material.

It is our mission in helping clean up the greater Seattle area that we operate in ways that keep the future of our planet in mind. We already met our initial short term goal of 70% now we are shooting for 80% to be recycled by 2025.
