Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the City of Washington will be suspending curbside recycling immediately. Sorting at the curb of all recyclables has added risk of exposure for our workers and the community. We will continue to leave the recycling center open for those who wish to recycle and take the items at their convenience.  Please place all your solid waste in your weekly trash.

As we continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation, we have made the decision to suspend the E-Cycle Event (April 18th) and Big Trash Week (April 20th – 24th).  The reschedule date is To Be Determined (TBD).  This decision does not affect residential trash pickup.
