Recycling Powered by AtWork!

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


The AtWork! Recycling Center is a free community drop-off site for all kinds of recyclable products every day of the week.

AtWork! staffers assist customers, sort commodities for shipment and resale, and are always on the lookout for innovative ways to recycle. Our Recycling Center demonstrates AtWork!’s mission of providing valuable community and environmental services, while providing good jobs to people with disabilities.

We also host a donation truck from Seattle Goodwill to take items our center cannot recycle, such as clothes, furniture, toys and small appliances.
Hours: Open for drop-off every day during daylight hours.

Staffed hours: Mon. – Fri. – Sat. 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Closed Sat. and Sun.
