New South Transfer Station is open to the public

Here's the official announcement from Seattle Public Utilities:

"The new state-of-the-art South Transfer Station is now open to all customers and replaces the former South Recycling and Disposal Station located down the street. The hi-tech, ultra-environmental (LEED Gold) station will serve customers for at least the next 50 years. The total project cost will be $76 million. This includes costs of property acquisition, site cleanup, environmental studies and master plan, along with $55 million for the engineering design, permitting, equipment, material testing, construction, construction management and improvements to the land."

The West Seattle Herald toured the facility at the beginning of March, and you can revisit that story here for an in-depth preview before your first drop off!

For more information from SPU, their project website is found here.

The new transfer station is located at 130 S. Kenyon St., just north of the old facility.
