King County is offering residents two weekends of free and convenient disposal of excess yard waste to help them recover from this year’s snow and wind storms.
For two weekends only, March 30-31 and April 6-7, King County residents can drop off storm-related yard waste free of charge at King County Solid Waste Division facilities with yard waste recycling. The closest location to Federal Way is the Bow Lake Recycling and Transfer Station, 18800 Orillia Rd S, Tukwila. Please note that the Algona Transfer Station does not accept source-separated yard waste, so it is not participating.

Yard waste such as branches, brush, tree stumps and wood rounds are allowed. No plastic bags, garbage, sod, soil or rocks can be accepted. Branches must be under 8 feet long and less than 4 inches in diameter. Tree stumps or wood rounds must be less than 2 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet.

More information can be found on the King County Bow Lake Transfer Station Website.
