What Items Does the King County Solid Waste Facilities Division Take?

The King County Solid Waste Facilities Division is kept busy all year long. After all, we’re making garbage every day and it has to go somewhere, right? Well, yes and no. Here is theie mission statement: “King County’s solid waste facilities are designed to accept a wide range of materials; however, there are legal, operational and safety reasons why some materials are restricted.” Translation: you could be stuck with a lot of junk. Here is what they won’t accept:

“Items more than eight feet long.” They include things like boats, trailers, and campers but it could also be a sofa.

“Computers, monitors, laptops and televisions.” Basically, they’re not taking any e-waste. Sadly, this is the exact time of year when you’ve probably got a lot of that to throw out. That’s because you’re buying all new gadgets. What happens to those old ones? They get stuffed into closets or under beds. Not a very practical use of space.

“Dense items.” These are described as anything that is “2 feet by 2 feet and weight more than 200 lbs.” Basically, if you’ve just repaved your driveway or patio then you’ll be hanging on to all the concrete you tore up. Even a decent pile of dirt from the garden wouldn’t be accepted.

“Major motor vehicle parts.” These are very common and can include fenders, tires, and engines parts, but like everything else, it appears they are yours to keep.

Is there a way to get rid of these kinds of objects? Absolutely and that would be hiring Junk King Seattle. The concern with the Solid Waste folks is that those “rejected” items could damage their garbage trucks. With Junk King Seattle, everything gets loaded onto the back of the Junk King truck.
