South Transfer Station
New South Transfer Station Open and Operational
The new state-of-the-art South Transfer Station is now open to all customers and replaces the former one to better serve residents and businesses with recycling, composting and garbage disposal for the next 50 years. For an in-depth preview with photos and a video of the new facility, check out the March 2013 West Seattle Herald article that profiles the station and its operations.
North Transfer Station
SPU plans to replace the current North Transfer Station with a more modern and efficient facility that will meet the growing future needs of the city. Design of the new transfer station has begun with the hiring of the CDM Smith team as the project designer, Mahlum as the architect and HBB Landscape Architecture as the landscape architects. The design phase will wrap up in 2014.
