Thank you for visiting the Kittitas County Transfer Station Relocation project website. Kittitas County intends to relocate the Ellensburg Transfer Station to a new site at a location that has yet to be determined. The new station will provide all the same services (transfer station, compost facility, household hazardous waste facility, and recycling depot) that are at the existing Ellensburg Transfer Station, which will be closed.

We are excited to be working with the community to decide on the new site for the transfer station. Your suggestions and input are essential throughout the site evaluation process. We want to make it as easy as possible to hear from the community. During comment periods, this website will allow you to provide your feedback. Please check back periodically for project updates.

Latest update (September 2018):

The County Commissioners have selected the US 97/Old Highway 10 site and have entered into a purchase and sales agreement with the landowner. Details about the site can be found in the Final Site Selection report. Please click here to view the Final Site Selection report.
