Waste and Recovery Center (WARC)
 2420 Hogum Bay Rd NE
Lacey, WA (see Google map).

See WARC rates, and hours and a list of yard waste items accepted.

Organics that are self-hauled to the WARC are taken to the woody debris area where food and food-soiled paper can attract vermin and birds and cause serious odor problems. Food and food-soiled papers can be collected in the curbside organics program because they are processed quickly in a different area. Learn more about organics collection services for businesses.

Silver Springs Organics
13835 Military Rd SW
Rainier, WA
