Recycling in Thurston County
You can recycle at a number of facilities in Thurston County, or at your own home through curbside collection service. Better yet, consider making your materials available for others to use.
Recycling is great - but there are better ways of saving resources. You can also reduce the amount of stuff you buy in the first place, and reuse old items again and again. Learn more about waste prevention and reuse here!
