County’s recycling station to close for 3 weeks in May

By Nicholas Johnson | Apr 26, 2017

The postponed closure of the Airport Road Recycling and Transfer Station is scheduled for May 1 through May 21.

The closure was originally scheduled to occur in January and was postponed to February due to weather in Eastern Washington causing disruptions in receiving containers to remove waste generated at the facility. The February closure was later cancelled and has now been rescheduled.

During the three week closure, repairs will be made to the compactors and tipping floor. The recycling area will remain open during regular hours, however, yard waste will not be accepted. The station is scheduled to reopen at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 22.

During the closure, the Cathcart Way Temporary Transfer Station at 8915 Cathcart Way, in Snohomish will be open for commercial haulers, mechanical unload and hydraulic dump style vehicles only. Recycling will not be available at the Cathcart site.

Customers who unload their garbage and/or recycling by hand will need to use the Southwest Recycling and Transfer Station in Mountlake Terrace or the North County Recycling and Transfer Station in Arlington.

The repairs are funded by transfer station customer fees. For information on alternate locations, fees, normal operating hours or about the closure, visit or call 425-388-3425.
