South Transfer Station II

Review Status

On May 5, 2016, we approved the concept design for the South Transfer Station II, with recommendations. We will review schematic design at a future date.

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, de-watering facility, and support offices. The additional facility will provide for recycling and de-watering needs for Southeast Seattle.
