How to recycle

Barrels or Drums

Hazardous

Sealed drums and drums that held hazardous waste must go to King County Household Hazardous Waste.

Drop-off locations

Bring barrels and drums that held non-hazardous material to city transfer stations:

  • Empty barrels and drums must be clean and cut in half.
  • Clean metal can be recycled for no fee.

In garbage

Plastic and dirty metal drums that held non-hazardous material can go in the garbage.

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