Garbage Collection Back to Regular Schedule

With the drivers having returned to work, Seattle Public Utilities is asking customers to put out their garbage, yard waste and recycling on their regularly scheduled collection days.

Customers are reminded to have their containers available by 7 a.m. to ensure collection.

Residential customers whose collections were missed due to the strike on Wednesday and Thursday may do the following:

  • Set out up to twice their garbage and yard waste next week on their regular collection day, at no additional cost.
  • Set out recycling on their next collection day, which will be in two weeks.

For businesses and apartments, Waste Management will attempt to collect missed collections on Friday and this weekend.
