Curbside Recycling East of Morton:

The Lewis County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) approved a measure in 2023 that expands curbside recycling to residents living east of Morton. The hauler providing this service, LeMay, a division of Waste Connections, is currently delivering containers to each household already participating in their curbside garbage collection program. Pickup of recyclable materials started in April.

Commissioners approved Ordinance 1339, which will be codified as Chapter 8.10 LCC, to allow for a curbside recycling program in all the unincorporated areas of the county. It sets the boundaries for the program, lists what recyclables will be picked up, and outlines the service levels available to customers.

The program collects recyclable paper, plastic bottles, jugs, tin cans, aluminum cans, and cardboard all in one 95-gallon. Before the curbside program's expansion, the recycling collection area extended from the county’s western border at Pe Ell to the city of Morton and its urban growth area. It had approximately 19,000 customers and keeps nearly 3,600 tons of recyclables out of the regional landfill annually. The expansion will add about 1,700 customers.

Residents who already have garbage service will automatically receive the recycling containers. Residents who don't currently have curbside garbage pickup, but are interested in signing up for this service, can call LeMay at 360-736-4769. Residents also have the option of subscribing to recycling only pickup by calling LeMay at 360-736-4769.
