Seattle’s north solid waste station to close for 2 years
State-of-the-art Fremont/Wallingford facility scheduled to open in 2016
SEATTLE—Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is getting ready to replace the city’s North Transfer Station (1350 North 34th Street) with a more modern and efficient facility that will meet the growing future needs of the city.
To prepare for the demolition and rebuild work, the station will close permanently, after 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 20. A new North Transfer Station is expected to open on the same site, in 2016. To learn more about the North Transfer Station Rebuild Project, visit the project website at www.seattle.gov/util/NewNorth.
Options while the station is closed
Here are two options while the transfer station is closed:
- Use the new South Transfer Station facility at 130 South Kenyon Street in South Park. Directions and station hours for the South Transfer Station are at www.seattle.gov/util/Dump.
- Avoid the dump altogether. Arrange for a pickup of bulky items.
