Saturday, Nov. 6 & Sunday, Nov. 7

The spring event attracted thousands of participants and demand overwhelmed the event. In response, a five-minute unloading time limit is in effect.
Entrants must show a utility bill or I.D. with a Lakewood address. An unloading time limit of 5 minutes will be enforced. No box vans or vehicles taller than 7′ will be permitted. No commercial dumping is allowed. Vehicles must arrive with properly secured loads. All loose trash must be bagged.
Residents must be prepared to back up a steep ramp and unload their own vehicles. Participants must mask up around others and must wear closed-toed shoes while unloading.
Tires (removed from rims)
Long Lumber (8’+)
The City’s Garbage, Recycling, and Waste page provides instructions to dispose of specialty items and directions to local transfer stations. The Tacoma Recovery & Transfer Station reopened to Pierce County residents on Aug. 25 (it had been exclusive to Tacoma residents for most of the pandemic).
