The maximum allowed weight is 14,000 lbs due to safety concerns. If the container weighs more than 14,000 lbs, it will be off-loaded at the customer’s expense. Materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks or other heavy materials add bulk and weight to the container and should be collected separately from other debris.

Recology trucks are 34 feet long. To enter a location and deliver a debris box, we need at least 34 feet plus the length of the container. We also need at least 16 feet of clear overhead space with no wires or building overhangs.

Recology King County offers a limited supply of debris boxes with solid lids which help to reduce the amount of rainwater that enters the container. Rainwater will affect the weight of the container particularly if the container is filled with absorbent materials such as dry wall, carpet, or mattresses.

To minimize water volume and weight, remember to keep the lid closed, keep the container under cover or utilize a tarp where applicable. If a lid is needed, please mention when requesting the container so we can prioritize this need upon delivery.

During rainy weather, access to various sites may be limited due to mud, visibility, etc. If our driver feels that a location is un-serviceable or unsafe, we will inform you as soon as possible, continue service when conditions improve, or work with you to find an alternative solution if needed.

If you have questions about how to operate your debris box lid, it is best to meet the driver on site during the initial delivery. Our driver can show you how to safely use the lid. For your protection, please do not remove the pins that connect the lid to the container. If the lid does not open to the correct side for your operations, please contact Customer Service at 425.413.1555 and we will work with you to resolve the problem.

In the City of Maple Valley, hauling times for debris boxes are restricted by the City noise ordinance. Large containers can be collected in residential zones between 7am and 6pm.  Recology King County guarantees any haul within 24 hours of notification.

Recology guarantees any haul within 24 hours of notification for contracted service, and offers a four hour time window for container hauling and delivery if requested when scheduling the delivery/haul.

When loading a debris box, the materials cannot be higher than the sides of the container. If you are loading heavy materials, weight restrictions may limit the volume you can put into the container.

When you call to schedule the delivery or service of a debris box, you will be required to designate it as garbage; construction and demolition debris, recycling, or organic material.

You will need to take the following steps:

  • Use an AHERA-certified building inspector to conduct an asbestos survey and locate potential asbestos-containing material.

Full debris boxes can be heavy. We recommend that customers place sheets of plywood on top of the driveway where the container wheels and legs would go. Recology is not responsible for damage caused to property from debris boxes.
Placing  a container in the public right of way may require a street use permit. To request a permit, please call the City of Maple Valley Public Works Department at 425.413.8800 or submit a Right-Of-Way Permit Application.
Weight limitations prevent the collection of concrete or dirt in a debris box larger than 10-yards.
A dry run charge is a fee assessed if we come out to haul a scheduled debris box, but cannot haul that container due to access issues, excessive container weight, wrong material, severe contamination, or last-minute customer request to cancel collection.
