Thank you for visiting the Kittitas County Transfer Station Relocation project website. Kittitas County selected the US 97/Old Highway 10 site for the new Ellensburg Transfer Station in August 2018. The relocated station will provide all the same services (transfer station, compost facility, moderate risk waste facility, and recycling depot) that are at the existing Ellensburg Transfer Station, which will be closed.

Thank you for your input to date. Your suggestions and input were essential throughout the site evaluation process. We will continue to seek your feedback on this website when we enter the Design phase of the project. Please check back periodically for project updates.

Latest update (December 2018):

After a Phase 1 Environmental Assessment, the County Commissioners purchased the US 97/Old Highway 10 site for the new transfer station. Details about the site can be found in the Final Site Selection Report. Please click to view the draft Phase 1 Environmental Assessment.
