Community Drop-Off Collection Site 

Recology and the City of Maple Valley have partnered to open a temporary drop-off collection site for residential customers impacted by service delays due to inclement weather. To serve as many Recology residential customers as possible, individual drop-offs will be limited to delayed service accumulations. The drop-off site is intended for Recology residential customers only and verification of customer status may be requested.
