News Release: Limited garbage pickup resumes today

Residential customers on a revised schedule this week. No residential pickup south of I-90 today.

February 7, 2017—Commercial garbage, recycling or food/yard waste pickup resumed today across Seattle. Collections for residential customers partially resumed today on a revised schedule based on the solid waste contractors’ assessment of neighborhood road conditions:

  • Monday residential customers, north of I-90 will be collected today (Tuesday).
  • Monday residential customers, south of I-90: Due to continued icy conditions, there is no residential garbage, recycling or food/yard waste pickup in these areas again today. Customers should put out materials on their next regularly scheduled pick up day (next Monday), as described below.
  • Tuesday residential customers will be collected tomorrow (Wednesday), weather and road conditions permitting.
  • Wednesday, Thursday and Friday services will all be delayed one day this week. (Friday customers will receive service on Saturday.)

For Monday residential customers south of I-90 or other customers not serviced this week due to icy roads, please put containers out on your next regularly scheduled pickup day. (This includes recycling even if next Monday isn’t your usual recycling collection day.) Customers missed this week will be allowed to set out double their normal amount of garbage, recycling and yard waste at no additional charge, on their next scheduled collection day. Please use extra bags or boxes for the additional materials.
