Thurston County Solid Waste is your waste prevention and recycling resource. We provide community education, technical assistance, and resources to help you reduce waste.

To promote waste prevention and sustainable resource use in Thurston County through education, technical assistance, and community building.
We see a future in which everyone in Thurston County makes informed and responsible choices about what we produce and consume, so that every day our community creates less waste.
