Small amounts of clean soil can go in your garbage can. Do not exceed weight limits. Large quantities are accepted at the Transfer Station, for a fee.
Dirt & soil does not belong in Yard Waste (sod is accepted).
Other options:
  • People often look for clean soil for home gardens. Put up a "Free Clean Soil" sign.
  • Some businesses accept clean soil. See the King County “What Do I Do With?” website.
Clean soil contains no plastic, wood, metal, oil, or other materials. Learn more about contaminated soil
