Maple Valley and King County Special Recycling Collection Events
Through grant funds from King County Solid Waste, Washington State Department of Ecology, and the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program of King County, Maple Valley and rural King County residents can recycle items typically not collected in their curbside program each spring and fall at residential collection events held at Rock Creek Elementary School - 25700 Maple Valley Highway. Residential customers are mailed an event flyer two to three weeks prior to the residential events.
These grants also fund one business recycling collection event which is typically held on a weekday in July. Businesses are notified by direct mailing.
