Deadline extended for public feedback on new South King County recycling and garbage transfer station

Community members are invited to participate in an online open house to review and share input on design concepts for a new recycling and garbage transfer station coming to South King County in 2023.

The deadline for participation is extended to June 2, and the online content is now available in Russian, Korean and Spanish.

King County is building the new facility to serve the cities of Algona, Auburn, Federal Way, Pacific and surrounding unincorporated areas. It will replace the outdated Algona Transfer Station, which has been in service for more than 50 years.

The new facility will include features that will modernize operations, reduce community impacts, and make recycling, and the safe disposal of garbage yard waste and hazardous waste more convenient for south King County communities.

The online open house will enable people to review design concepts and offer input that will be considered by the project team. King County is also engaging the community through a Design Advisory Group comprised of representatives from local cities, nonprofit organizations, waste disposal experts, and neighboring residents.

The new facility, at 35101 W. Valley Highway S. in Algona, is next to the current Algona Transfer 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.

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.
