Weather closes King County’s transfer station in Kirkland; other solid waste facilities open for now
Snow conditions have prompted King County to close its Houghton Solid Waste Transfer Station in Kirkland for a second straight day, but all other county transfer facilities are operating normally for now.
However, severe weather conditions could trigger early closures throughout the system, so customers should visit the King County Solid Waste Division Web site for updates before getting on the road at http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/facilities/transfer.asp.
Houghton customers are currently being diverted to the Factoria Transfer Station in Bellevue at 13800 SE 32nd Street.
