King County makes it easy to report illegal dumping

Illegal dumping can spread pests and disease, harm the environment, reduce property values and create public eyesores. Fortunately, the King County Illegal Dumping Hotline offers a simple and convenient way for citizens to report suspected illegal dumping activity wherever it might occur.

Reporting illegal dumping activity is as easy as visiting the King County Solid Waste Division website, www.kingcounty.gov/ReportDumping, and providing information about the location, the nature of the complaint and other details.

Reports are passed on to the appropriate agency for investigation and site clean-up.

Illegal dumping can also be reported by calling 206-296-SITE (7483) or toll free at 1-866-431-7483.

The King County Solid Waste Division provides garbage transfer, disposal and recycling services for residents and businesses in all of King County, except for Seattle and Milton. The division also provides household hazardous waste disposal options and recycling education programs for its residents.
