Your Three Carts

Whether you are a business owner, property manager, or resident, Recology King County works with you to develop tailored recycling, composting, and garbage programs based on your needs.

CompostBinDarkGreen1

COMPOST
All food scraps, food-soiled paper (without shiny plastic coating), approved compostable bags, yard waste and untreated wood go in the green food and yard waste bin.

RecycleBin

RECYCLING
Paper, bottles, cans, and most plastics (empty, clean and dry materials only). Mercer Island residential, multi-family and commercial garbage service includes recycling collection at no additional charge.

LandfillBin

GARBAGE
What’s left? Not much! Thin plastics (plastic bags and food packaging), pet litter, foam trays and containers, empty paint cans, broken glass and ceramics to name a few. We aim to send as little material to the landfill as possible.
