Island County Solid Waste Transfer Stations Resuming Normal Operations
on May 4, 2022

Solid waste facilities reopening following temporary closures

Coupeville, Wash., May 3, 2022 – Due to staffing and supply chain related issues, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) has been unable to provide intermodal shipping containers, which are used to ship solid waste by rail to the regional landfill, to Island County solid waste facilities.  As a result, on April 28, 2022 Island County solid waste facilities could not ship solid waste to the landfill, exceeded storage capacities, and were temporarily closed.

On May 4, 2022, following receipt of containers, all Island County solid waste facilities will resume normal operations and open hours.
