Tacoma Dump Guide

If you live in Tacoma and you’re looking for a place to dispose of your unwanted items, your best bet for a Tacoma dump is the Tacoma Transfer and Recovery Center. Traveling to a dump site and ridding your vehicle of the garbage is not your sole option, though.

If you would rather not stress about hauling away your junk by yourself, call upon the skills of our Seattle Junk Removal experts instead. A well-established and respected Seattle-based company, 99 Junk Removal specializes in the removal of junk, recycle, and yard waste all throughout Puget Sound neighborhoods, Tacoma included.

Tacoma City Dump Location

The Tacoma Transfer and Recovery Center is a King County facility that accepts both garbage waste and recycle. When it comes to recycling, the lines that set recycle apart from compost and garbage can be blurred rather easily. The Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Center can also be found at the following address.

Tacoma City Dump Price

Fees for using the Tacoma Transfer and Recovery Center are dependent upon the contents of your disposal. Rates for dumping garbage depend on the weight of the loads and the residency of the person disposing of their waste. Commercial residents and people from out-of-town are charged a flat minimum fee of $20.00, with an additional $7.25 that accrues per 100 pounds of garbage. Tacoma residents must also pay a minimum fee of $20.00 but it covers their first 400 pounds of waste. Every 100 pounds thereafter is another $7.25.

Yard waste is free to dispose of for those who reside in Tacoma. Everyone else is charged $20.00, plus $7.25 per 100 pounds of waste. As with almost all King County recycling locations, there are no fees for recyclable products. The City of Tacoma created a guide to recycling as well. It has answers to all of your questions about what can and cannot be recycled.

The rates for using the facilities allow for an unloading time of 30 minutes. For every half hour increment you spend on site, an additional charge of $12.25 will be added to your bill. These unloading times are recorded from the time you begin unloading to the moment you finish.

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.
