SALE OF COMPOST AND SELF-HAUL YARD WASTE
Dear Kittitas County Residents, In light of recent events involving COVID-19 we will be stopping the sale of compost and receiving of yard waste for the time being. This is for the safety of the residents and employees. Due to the Stay at Home order staffing is limited. This is a perfect time to practice an at home composting system, it will be rewarding to produce your own and you will gain a valuable skill.

If you must self-haul household garbage please consider the safety of yourself and our employees and try to limit the number of trips to the transfer station during this Stay at Home Order
