Basin Recycling Facility
The Basin Recycling Facility in Pasco accepts many types of material for recycling.
Scrap Metals Recycling
Basin Recycling recycles aluminum and steel (tin) cans. For metals other than aluminum or steel cans, recycle scrap metals at Tommy’s Salvage in Pasco or Twin City Metals in Kennewick.
Used Motor Oil
The Household Hazardous Waste facility will accept used motor oil and filters. However, it may be more convenient to take it to any of the several Franklin County’s oil drop locations.
A maximum of five gallons per visit is allowed. For more information on recycling used motor oil, call Franklin County Solid Waste hotline at (800) 967-8128.
