City of Tacoma Residency


  • Residency requirements
A residential customer is an individual who physically occupies a single-family or duplex dwelling and is directly responsible for public utilities serving the unit to which solid waste is provided. An occupant of an apartment also qualifies as a residential customer. They do not, however, qualify to bring in appliances, construction/demolition material or yard waste as a residential customer. 

  • Proof of residency
Please remember to bring proof of your residency when you visit the Tacoma Landfill. You will need to show photo identification. If the solid waste account is not in your name, but you are a resident of a Tacoma household that receives solid waste service, you must bring a current—within the last 30 days—piece of mail (such as a bank statement, telephone or cable bill, etc.) with your name and the Tacoma residential address on it.

For more information about residency requirements, call the scalehouse at (253) 593-7724.
