Qualified C&D Recycling Facilities

City code requires that recyclable material from jobsites in Seattle must be sent to a Qualified Facility, which includes Source Separated Recycling Facilities and mixed waste recycling facilities. SPU Director's Rule SW-620 describes the general and specific facility requirements for being classified as a Qualified Facility. The rule applies to:

  • Source-separated recyclers
  • Mixed-waste recycling facilities

A list of source-separated recyclers is available at King County's What do I do with...? website.

Seattle Municipal Code 21.36.089 directs Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) to set up criteria to identify Qualified Receiving and Recycling Facilities for recovering targeted construction materials for recycling and beneficial use. A facility that is Seattle Qualified and King County Designated must:

  • comply with State and local permitting requirements, including maintaining a Solid Waste Permit from the Health Department
  • report monthly to the City on incoming and outgoing construction materials for reuse, recycling, beneficial use and disposal, and
  • meet performance standards for recovering banned materials from residuals bound for landfill disposal.

SPU Director's Rule SW-620 describes the general and specific facility requirements for being classified as a Qualified Facility and references the below materials:
