So, what do we do with your junk?
Well, that depends on what kind of junk we take from you...
Clean Debris Recycling
If the junk is comprised of all wood, yard waste, rock, brick, brush, tree, stumps, dirt, or concrete we can recycle the waste at a topsoil recycling center. There are a few different options depending on your location, we usually go to the most convenient topsoil recycling facility for us to dump the material.
If your junk is comprised of all metal we take it to the closest metal recycling facility. There are metal recycling centers all throughout the state the two we generally visit are in Seattle and Woodinville.
Recycle Reusable Items
If your items are reusable we would like to donate them to charity or let the junk haulers reuse them. Even though you may consider it junk it may be reusable.
To find out more about how your donation helps, visit Northwest Center at www.bigbluetruck.org
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)
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.
