North Transfer Station
The North Transfer Station closing for rebuild on January 21, 2014
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is getting ready to replace the North Transfer Station with a more modern and efficient facility that will meet the growing future needs of the city. The current transfer station will close after 5:30 p.m. on January 20, 2014. Once closed, the old facility will be torn down and all new facilities will be constructed.
During the North Transfer Station construction, we encourage you to use the South Transfer Station facility at 130 South Kenyon Street in South Park. Visit the transfer station website to plan your trip.
