Waste Directory "Yellow book"

The Waste Directory tells what to do with each waste type and lists vendors that will handle each. However, the directory does not list all potential vendors. Listing doesn't constitute an endorsement of the vendor. Protect yourself by making sure the vendors you hire are responsible. Mailing, email, and web addresses for vendors are provided in the Vendor Directory.

Choosing a vendor

Although you may rely on other companies to haul away and dispose of your waste, you are ultimately responsible for the waste from "cradle to grave." Choose your vendors carefully, considering reliability as well as cost.

What kind of vendor do you need?

The Waste Directory tells what to do with each waste type and lists vendors that will handle each.

The best vendor for you isn't necessarily the least expensive one. Don't trade short-term cost savings for long term liabilities. Look for vendors whose services match your needs.

How to determine if a vendor follows legal requirements.

The directory does not list all potential vendors. Listing doesn't constitute an endorsement of the vendor. Protect yourself by making sure the vendors you hire are responsible.

How to find a vendor

When you interview a vendor, ask questions.

Please see the rest of our site, where you can find information on compliance issues, financial assistance, and recognition for environmental compliance and leadership, as well as technical information on best management practices, government agencies, and other matters.

If you find that any vendors listed in the directory aren't able to provide the services specified, or if you are a vendor and would like to be included in the directory, send an email to business.waste@kingcounty.gov, or use our contact form.
