Waste & Recycling

Recycling markets (buyers of recycled materials) are continuing to change since China banned the import of most plastic and paper in 2018. Click on the flyer to the right for tips and information relevant to City of Sequim.
Glass and plastic bags may be recycled if you self-haul but should not go into your bin. For complete information about how to #RecycleRight and where to take it please refer to the City’s flyer and these webpages:

OPT OUT or RECYCLe PHONE BOOKS
There are several companies that distribute phone books to homes and businesses in Sequim. If you would like to opt out of having phone books delivered, publishers have collectively created a consumer opt-out program that allows you to opt out of all or a selection of directories delivered within the zip code. Visit https://www.yellowpagesoptout.com. The site will require registration including your address, telephone number and email.
You may recycle unwanted phone books with "mixed paper."
