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 (April 2019):

Permitting for the new solid waste transfer station site is currently underway. Kittitas County is working to obtain environmental and land use permits necessary for development of the proposed solid waste transfer station at the new site. Details about the new site can be found in the Final Site Selection Report.

Additionally, the Public Works department plans to take advantage of the new site by re-locating its Maintenance Shop to the northeast corner of the site.
