Des Moines City Garbage Dump

If you have a need for trash removal Seattle in Des Moines, WA, you may need to visit the city garbage dump to do so.

The Bow Lake Recycling & Transfer Station

18800 Orillia Rd S

Tukwila, WA 98188

Phone: 206-477-4466 or 800-325-6165 x 74466

The station is concerned with encouraging people to waste less and therefore includes a recycling center.

The Bow Lake facility is appropriate for both disposing of junk and getting rid of items that need to be recycled. As long as items are sorted properly, you can bring both your trash and your recycling to the facility in the same load.

Note, however, that recycling hours are different from general transfer station hours and that there are new sorting requirements for all materials as of January 2018.

Fees and Rules at the Des Moines, WA, Dump

As of January 2018, some new rules took effect at the Bow Lake Recycling & Transfer Station. Employees at the station are ready to help with questions about these rules, but they now require that people separate out cardboard, scrap metal, yard waste and clean wood such as pallets and untreated lumber. There are no fees for cardboard or scrap metal and fees for the other materials – clean wood and yard waste – are lower than fees for garbage.

In addition to these new rules, there are some rules that have always been in place at the facility. For example, recyclable materials, appliances, mercury-containing items such as light bulbs, yard waste and textiles can only be delivered to the facility during recycling hours. If you have any of the items as part of your haul, be sure to note the recycling hours and plan accordingly.

The facility offers guidance on how to recycle the above-mentioned items, which can sometimes be tricky because of harmful chemicals and materials within things like appliances. Also be sure that your load is always secured, as there are additional fines for unsecured loads.

The fees for using the facility breakdown as follows:

Anything that does not fall into the categories laid out above is fair game and you are free to bring them to the dump site. If you have specific questions about your items or you are unsure if they are allowable at Algona Transfer Station, please contact the facility at (253) 722-4285.
