Free disposal of branches and tree limbs at Solid Waste station this weekend and next

Friday, January 27, 2012

King County Executive Dow Constantine has cleared the way for free disposal of branches, tree limbs and other wood debris left in the wake of recent wind and snow storms.

“We have made it easy for residents to dispose of debris so they can quickly put the storms of last week behind them and move on with life,” said Executive Constantine.

Free wood debris recycling for King County residents will be available on Jan. 28-29, and again on Feb. 4-5 at the Shoreline Recycling and Transfer Station, 2300 N 165th St, Shoreline 98133 from 9am to 3pm.

The collection sites and events are exclusively for wood debris from the recent storms. Stumps, logs and limbs no longer than six feet in length are allowed – no brush, leaves, grass clippings, sod or soil can be accepted. These events are open to all King County residents. People bringing wood debris are reminded to secure their loads.

King County Solid Waste Division Director Kevin Kiernan says residents have several additional storm debris disposal options available, including curbside recycling (yard waste cart) and commercial recycling companies that charge a fee for their service, but may prove to be more convenient for some residents.
