South County Recycling and Transfer Station (SCRTS) | king county solid waste

King County is constructing a new Recycling and Transfer Station just north of the existing Algona Transfer Station. The facility replaces the existing Algona facility which no longer meets the County’s service and operational efficiency standards. The facility features an enclosed solid waste transfer and processing area, solid waste compactor units, a recycling collection and sorting area, employee facility, scale house and weigh station, above-ground fuel tank and fueling station, and a moderate risk waste facility. The new facility will include commercial and public recycling drop-off areas, hazardous waste disposal areas, and an administrative office.


As a subconsultant, Rolluda Architects provided architectural design services, specifications, Green Design, and Energy Efficient design for this project. The facility design is targeting the Living Building Challenge (LBC) Energy Petal Certification. The project will focus on the categories of Energy, Place, Equity and Beauty, and will include the following features that align with the LBC design framework:

  • Solar panels

  • Sustainable construction materials

  • Natural light

  • Native plant life


Construction is currently underway and SCRTS is estimated to be completed by 2026.
