About Us

Recycling Center

United Recycling & Container has been serving the Snohomish and King County communities for 20 years. Our operation began as a recycling center, processing brush, dirt, clean wood, and concrete. Since then, we added a sorting process to our facility and now there are several more materials that we accept. In 2005, we began our container division, making recycling more accessible, as well as economical in King and Snohomish Counties. Our evolution continues, as we are always looking for new markets to accept our recycled materials, ultimately increasing the amount of material we extract in our sorting process and reducing the amount of material that ends up in landfills. If you don’t see a type of material listed on our website, feel free to ask us – we are constantly adding materials to our processing list.

Our recycling center is licensed, bonded, insured and properly permitted to give you peace of mind. Our customers can be assured we are recycling as much of the material as possible. In fact, on average we exceed a 90% recycling rate! We are proud to be an approved recycling facility of Seattle Public Utilities, based on multiple facility audits in 2014 that validated the quality of our sorting process and high recycling rates.

In addition, several of the materials accepted are recycled into products that we can offer back locally, including crushed concrete, crushed asphalt, organic hog fuel, organic dark mulch and topsoil.


We recognize all customer needs and all job sites are different, so we strive to offer efficient, cost effective options. We have a range of container sizes, from 20 yard concrete containers to 40 yard brush containers. We operate on a paperless dispatch system, enabling us to respond quickly and provide a high level of customer service.

For contractors that need large volumes of material hauled in a short time, we can save you money by dedicating a truck (or multiple trucks) to your project, at time and materials pricing. Maybe you have an industrial or manufacturing facility that needs regular service? Our service agreements can save you 30% over comparable services (and you can be assured we are recycling your materials). We service all types of businesses with reliable, friendly and professional service, including:

  • Demolition Contractors

  • Landscapers
  • Warehouse Operations
  • Retail Businesses
