WOODINVILLE, WA. – The City of Woodinville remains a finalist for final site of the Northeast Regional Transfer Station (NERTS) and is hosting a community presentation on the topic at City Hall on March 15, 2023, from 6:00pm until 7:30 pm. King County Solid Waste Division will be providing information on their siting process and future steps in the program.

Whether you live in, work in, or enjoy visiting this beautiful city, you are invited! This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions and to learn about how the proposed garbage transfer station would impact Woodinville’s vibrant character.

King County will soon replace the aging Houghton Recycling and Waste Transfer Station serving residents of Woodinville, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish, and unincorporated northeast King County.  The Houghton Transfer Station is one of King County's busiest transfer stations, but it offers limited recycling services and lacks the capacity to expand or provide more recycling services to meet the needs of a growing population.

One of the three proposed sites is a cluster of parcels located within the City of Woodinville along the 15000 block of Woodinville-Redmond Road in the south Valley Industrial District (about halfway between Downtown and the Tourist District). This site is currently home to several longtime local businesses and known environmentally sensitive areas.

If community members are unable to attend the presentation but still want to stay up to date on the siting process, register your email and receive updates on the siting process from City staff, including future engagement opportunities.  To sign up, visit: and enter your contact information or visit the City’s website to learn more about the project.
