Temporary Closure of Book Donation Bins at Thurston County Solid Waste Facilities


Submitted by Thurston County

Thurston County Public Works has temporarily closed the book donation bins at its drop-box facilities in Rainier and Rochester, and the Waste and Recovery Center (WARC) in Lacey.

The closure comes after the department was informed that Discovery Books, the service provider for the bins, would no longer be servicing them for the foreseeable future.

Effective immediately, the book donation bins at all three sites will be closed to the public until further notice. Residents are encouraged to retain any books they wish to donate until services are resumed.

Public Works apologizes for the inconvenience and is exploring alternative options to resume the book collection service. The department will provide updates as they become available.

For information on reuse or recycling alternatives for used books, residents can visit WhereDoITakeMy.org or contact 360-867-2491.
