Kittitas County Recycling and Yard Waste Drop Sites


Each person in Kittitas County discards the equivalent of 5.45 pounds of waste daily. More than 50% of that waste is reusable or recyclable. The loss of natural resources, energy and increasing costs of disposal make home source separating and recycling an important alternative.

In an effort to reduce the large amount of recyclable items (non-liquid, non-hazardous recyclables) that are presently disposed of at the transfer stations, Kittitas County offers a wide array of recycling opportunities at public and private drop-off recycling sites. The following recyclable items are accepted at each of the Kittitas County Transfer Stations in Cle Elum and Ellensburg:

  • Newspaper
  • Cardboard
  • Magazines
  • Tin cans
  • Aluminum cans
  • Plastic pop bottles
  • Plastic milk jugs
  • Glass
