Solid Waste Facilities – COVID–19 updates

The Port Townsend Transfer Station and Quilcene Dropbox are open on their normal schedules. We ask that you please note the following:

  • We are not accepting loads from outside of Jefferson County.
  • Expect longer wait times as we distance people further apart on the tipping floor.
  • Reduce trips and wait times by postponing your trip until you have a larger load.
  • Instead of self-hauling, consider signing up for garbage collection with Waste Connections 360-385-6612 https://www.murreysdisposal.com/jefferson-county
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others while unloading garbage, recycling, or yard waste.
  • Be patient and stay in your vehicle while waiting at our scales.
  • Pay with credit card (Visa/Mastercard) rather than cash, if possible.
  • Stay home if you or members of your household are sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. For COVID-19 information visit Public Health’s COVID_19 page.
