Acoustic Ceiling Tile

In garbage

Ceiling tiles that don’t contain asbestos can go in the garbage:

  • Items must fit in your bin with the lid closed.
  • Don’t exceed the weight limits printed on your bin.

Drop-off locations

Bring acoustic ceiling tiles that don’t contain asbestos to city transfer stations. Fees apply.


If you believe the ceiling tile contains asbestos, contact the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency at (206) 343-8800.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
