Beginning today, the Silverdale and Olalla Recycling and Garbage Facilities will open to the public.
The Silverdale facility will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to Tuesday and Olalla will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday to Monday.
All waste must be unloaded by hand.
This reopens all but the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility, for which the county is currently working on a plan to safely reopen.
With “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” orders still in effect, the county continues to ask customers to postpone any non-essential trips to its waste facilities. There will likely be lines and possible service interruptions, and facilities may close without notice if there are safety concerns.
If you do go to a waste facility, the county asks that customers remain six feet away from one another, consider using a protective face covering and bring hand sanitizer. Only one person is allowed out of a vehicle at a time and the county also asks that customers stay home if anyone in their household is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
All staff will wear protective face coverings and work to sanitize common areas and will not answer phones in order to assist customers.
