Solid waste or garbage is hauled by rail to Roosevelt Regional Landfill in Klickitat County, Washington. Recycled materials which are collected separately at three sites are transported to a variety of local companies for further processing. Household Hazardous Waste and moderate risk waste (from local businesses) is collected at the Skagit County Recycling and Transfer Station Collection Facility where it is packed and shipped for recycling or storage in a hazardous waste landfill.
