Jefferson County Solid Waste


HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION EVENT A SUCCESS.  Thank you to 120 households that participated in April’s Port Ludlow event.  The event diverted 3/4 ton of oil paints/stains/solvents; 650 lbs. of pesticides and toxics; 225 lbs. of aerosols; 150 lbs. of old fuels and diverted 2,791 lbs. of pollution potential from our waste stream.  44% of this was recycled or used for energy recovery.

  •  DID YOU MISS THIS EVENT?  Visit the year-round HHW Facility in the Port of Port Townsend, opened every Friday and first Saturday of each month, 10:00 – Noon & 12:30 – 4:30.

Don’t be a WISHCYCLER.  It’s tempting to want to recycle ‘everything,’ but those good intentions cause contamination.  Sort your recyclables according to the 2019 Recycle Brochure – and when in doubt, throw it out!

Secure your Load – it’s the law.
