Disposal for businesses


new_releases Special disposal procedure

In King County, electronics must be recycled. Electronics are banned from the garbage and are not accepted at recycling and disposal stations or hazardous waste collection sites.

E-Cycle Washington allows small businesses to recycle computers, monitors, laptops, cell phones, printers, and TVs and other electronics for free at one of their authorized drop-off collection sites. Visit the E-Cycle Washington website to find a drop-off location near you.

NOTE: As of January 1, 2024, electronics may no longer be thrown in the garbage in areas served by Seattle Public Utilities. Please follow the guidance on this page and arrange for a special item pick-up through Seattle Public Utilities or work with a local e-waste recycling organization such as E-Cycle Washington.
