A peek at the new South County Recycling and Transfer Station

Open house in Algona on Dec. 12 to focus on design of solid waste and recycling center

People interested in helping King County design a new South County Recycling and Transfer Station are invited to an open house set for Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Algona City Hall, 200 Washington Blvd., Algona.

King County is building the new facility, set to begin operating in 2023, to replace the aging Algona Transfer Station, which has been in service for more than 50 years.

The new facility will include services the current Algona Transfer Station is unable to provide, such as recycling, yard waste and household hazardous waste disposal, and make these services more accessible and convenient for south county residents.

People attending the open house will be able to meet project staff, and learn more about the new facility features while reviewing design concepts and sharing feedback.

The new facility will be at 35101 W. Valley Highway S. in Algona, which is next to the current station. The site was chosen after a multi-year siting and environmental review process.

Additional information about the project, including opportunities to stay informed and engaged, is available online, or by contacting King County’s Solid Waste Division at 206-477-4466. People can also contact the division to arrange language interpreter services or accommodations for people with disabilities at the open house.

King County operates eight transfer stations, two drop-boxes, the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill, and many programs to help customers recycle. Learn more about the Solid Waste Division at kingcounty.gov/solidwaste.
