The City of Seattle’s North & South Recycling and Disposal Stations will be open on Monday, February 21, during their regular business hours: 8 am to 5:30 pm. The North Recycling and Disposal Station is located at 1350 North 34th Street in the Fremont/Wallingford area.

Shopping for a Presidents’ Day Sale? If you’re replacing a large item such as a couch, bed or dishwasher and it’s in no condition for selling, exchanging or donating to charity, give SPU a call at 206-684-3000 and request a bulky item collection. SPU will pick up the item from your curb for a $30 fee ($38 for items containing gases, such as refrigerators) and save you the hassle of driving to the dump. The North and South Recycling and Disposal stations accept bulky items for a $30 fee.
