South Recycling Center

Review Status

On October 3, 2019, we reviewed the design development phase (90% design) for the South Recycling Facility project.  At this meeting we approved the design development with several recommendations.

Project Description

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is proposing to develop the second phase of the South Transfer Station facility, located near the intersection of 5th Ave S and S Kenyon St in Seattle's Southpark neighborhood. Phase I, located across Kenyon St from the proposed site, was completed in 2013. At that time, Phase I was not planned to accommodate all solid waste needs. Phase II is a 10-acre site to include a recycling and reuse center, household hazardous waste facility, solid waste trailer parking, and support offices. The additional facility will provide for recycling and de-watering needs for Southeast Seattle.

*Please note this project was formally reviewed at the Concept Design Phase as South Transfer Station II.  The project has been renamed the South Recycling Center.
