Recycling Powered by AtWork!

Recycling services that benefit the community, the earth, and job seekers.


**** SPECIAL NOTICE 6/9/2015: We are no longer accepting cardboard or shredding at our Recycling Center. We are still able to accept e-cycle and other recyclables, including items for the Goodwill truck. We apologize for any inconvenience. ****


After more than 35 years of proud service to Issaquah and surrounding communities, the AtWork! Recycling Center will close to the public as of Wednesday, July 1. We have deeply appreciated your patronage and support. Until our closure, we will still be open for drop off during business hours of Monday-Friday 8:00 am – 3:30 pm, accepting all commodities except cardboard, shredding and appliances.

For information on where to take your recyclables such as paper, cardboard and more, a brief description is located below, or you can download our helpful Recycling Options flyer.  Conveniently, many of the items that you used to bring to us are now collected curbside.

The Goodwill truck located at AtWork!’s Issaquah site will continue to accept: E-cycle, appliances, clothing, furniture, and other household items. For a full list of what Goodwill accepts, please visit their website. We strongly encourage the continued use of the Goodwill truck as it furthers AtWork!’s mission! If you would like to keep in touch with us directly, you can sign up for our e-newsletter here.

AtWork!’s other businesses, including Document Management, Packaging & Assembly, and Landscaping, will continue to operate out of the buildings next door. If you have any questions, please call us at 425-274-4000.
