Snohomish County’s North County Recycling and Transfer Station in Arlington Closed May 31 through June 2

 Three-day closure to complete upgrades of scale and scale house

EVERETT, Wash., May 9, 2016 – The Snohomish County Public Works Solid Waste Division will temporarily close its North County Recycling and Transfer Station (NCRTS) from May 31 through June 2, 2016. The closure will allow construction crews to move the new, upgraded scales into their permanent locations. The facility has been under construction since September 2015 for upgrading of scales and the replacement of the scale house.

Starting June 3rd, construction detours within NCRTS will be removed and normal access in and out of the station will resume. The temporary recycling area will remain in its current location until further notice.

When the facility re-opens, the following restrictions will continue for approximately two additional weeks:

  • Recycling is limited to mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard, tin and aluminum cans, and glass bottles and jars
  • Household hazardous waste collection is limited to used oil, filters, and antifreeze
  • Batteries and fluorescent bulbs are not accepted
  • Yard debris, wood debris, and scrap metal are not accepted in the recycle area, but are accepted as garbage at garbage disposal rates


Residents and businesses of the area should plan to use alternate recycling and transfer stations during these days.

For alternate locations; NCRTS normal operation hours, location, restriction updates, or fees; or for more information about the closure, visit or call 425-388-3425.
