Garbage and Recycling

Pierce County oversees planning for the county’s solid waste system and promotes waste prevention and recycling education. 


Our vision: A solid waste system that is equitable, protects human and environmental health, and is resilient to the known and unforeseen changes that are coming our way. 


Curbside garbage, recycling, and yard waste collection services in Pierce County are provided by several companies. Your location determines your service provider.  


The City of Tacoma has a separate system—contact  Tacoma Solid Waste if you live or operate a business within Tacoma city limits.
