Yard waste drop-off resumes at transfer stations
As of Monday, June 8, yard waste is once again accepted during regular business hours at Pierce County transfer stations (outside of the City of Tacoma). This change is part of Pierce County’s transition to Phase 2 of the State’s Safe Start reopening plan. Garbage and recycling continue to be accepted.
Yard waste drop-off was limited to three days a week during the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order and Phase 1 of Safe Start Washington. The limitations were in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure and protect the health of transfer station employees and customers.
