“Take care of your employees and they will take care of your business.”   Would you like to work for a company that takes that belief seriously while enjoying great benefits in a year-round, full time position?  We offer 100% employer paid medical and dental for the employee, paid time off, growth opportunities and so much more.

 The Company:

San Juan Transfer Station is part of the Lautenbach Recycling family of companies that have been serving the recycling needs of the Northwest for over 26 years.   We have built our reputation on a foundation of hard work, outstanding customer service, and a culture that operates as a family unit.  We are actively looking for team members that are looking for more than just a job and are ready to go to the next level with us.

  • 2019 Gold Award recipient of the C&D World Safety Awards
  • One of only two Recycling Certification Institute (RCI) certified facilities in the NW
  • We believe in and encourage a work-life balance

The Position:

This is a great opportunity for anyone living on San Juan Island or who would look forward to a gorgeous ferry commute! We are searching for an energetic, detail-oriented team member who enjoys working with people both in person and over the phone.  The transfer station can be fast paced, especially on the weekends and in the summer, with vehicles coming in and phones ringing so being comfortable in a dynamic and ever-changing environment is a must.  You’ll be interfacing daily with town and county drivers, the public, dispatch, accounting and yard personnel as you enter orders into the computer, weigh incoming loads on the scale, coordinate communication for incoming materials and generally act as guard at the gate in a friendly and welcoming manner.  While the daily customer service and scale responsibilities are the core of this position, we are looking for someone that is ready to step into a leadership and development role as well.  Do you have a demonstrated desire and ability to develop, implement and maintain processes and procedures to streamline efficiencies; coordinate outreach and community events while building relationships with town and county personnel; and suggest ways in which we can continuously improve and transform our service offerings?  If so, this position will be perfect for you and we’d love to talk to you.  The schedule for this position is Friday – Tuesday.


The Benefits:

  • 100% Medical and Dental paid for the employee – because your health and wellness matter to us we make it easier for you
  • Employer pays 100% of L&I rates – which means you take home more of your pay
  • Investment Options – Simple IRA available after 1 year with a 3% employer match
  • Employee Assistance Program – free access to support for every area of your life from stress management to legal advice
  • Paid Time Off – we want you to have flexibility, convenience, and control over your time off so we offer paid holiday and a PTO package
  • Family environment – you’re more than just an employee to us, you’re family
  • Culture – It’s a great place to work where you know what you do every day is important and appreciated 

 The Location:

The San Juan Transfer Station is minutes away from downtown Friday Harbor.  It is an active transfer station which has frequent traffic, dust and noise.  


Why Should You Apply?

  • Competitive pay
  • Excellent benefits
  • Fun and challenging environment
  • Paid holidays and PTO
