Due to the state of emergency during the coronavirus pandemic, the yard waste transfer site has limited hours.

Beginning Tuesday April 21, 2020, the City of Kent Yard Waste Transfer Site will open with limited hours and limited access. The yard waste site will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. City personnel will be present to check identification of individuals requesting to dump yard waste and debris.

 We will have personnel present during the 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. time period to check ID’s and allow access to the site.
