Thurston County Blue Bin Sites (Self-Haul)
Thurston County residents have the option of self-hauling recyclable materials to blue bin sites located throughout Thurston County. Look for the large blue recycling containers.
Note: Please be sure to follow the label instructions on the bins. Place materials loose in the blue bins -- not in paper or plastic bags. Also, if you go to a site and find that one or more bins are full, PLEASE do not leave your materials on the ground or elsewhere. Either come back another time, or try one of our other locations.
