Yard waste drop-off temporarily halted at Pierce County transfer stations, effective Sat., March 28

Transfer stations in Pierce County (outside of Tacoma) will temporarily stop accepting yard waste only effective Saturday, March 28.

The transfer stations in Pierce County include:

  • Hidden Valley
  • Purdy
  • Prairie Ridge
  • Key Center
  • Anderson Island

Garbage and recycling will continue to be accepted. Transfer stations provide essential services to the community and will remain open and in operation during this crisis.

There are no changes to curbside garbage, recycling and yard waste collection. Customers can contact their curbside service provider to add or change service.

Tips for managing yard debris at home include “grasscycling” by leaving grass clippings on the lawn and setting up a compost pile at home. More information about composting can be found at
