Recycle appliances at our Oct. 10 Recycling Collection Event. Refrigerant appliances have a passthrough charge (cash only).
If your appliance is still in working condition and newer than 10 years old, consider donating it to organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Second Use, or Salvation Army for reuse. Call in advance to ensure your appliance will be accepted.
Customers can recycle non-refrigerant type major appliances at no cost, including stoves, washers, and dryers at King County solid waste facilities where scrap metal is collected. The closest locations are in Bellevue and Shoreline.
Refrigerant appliances such as refrigerators and air conditioners have a disposal fee of $30 (2019 rate) at the King County Recycling and Transfer Stations.

Non-refrigerant appliances can be recycled as scrap metal for free, while refrigerant appliances have a pass-through charge. Our 2020 Recycling Collection Event is October 10.
