Solid Waste Fee Increase On Its Way

Every year the City of SeaTac’s solid waste contract allows for a cost of living adjustment equal to 75% of the CPI-W. This year that amount is a 1.26% rate increase. King County is also implementing a Hazardous Waste fee increase from $4.99/ton to $5.25/ton. The total solid waste fee increase will be $1.61 per month for the average resident that has a 96-gallon garbage container.

All SeaTac Recology customers will soon be receiving an updated service guide that includes the new rates and information about what can and cannot be recycled. If you have any questions, please contact Mason Giem, Public Works Program Coordinator, at (206) 973-4763 or email him at

Thank you for recycling, and please remember; all recycling must be empty, clean, and dry.
