Due to Winter Weather, Delayed Residential Collection week of Monday, February 15, 2021

Due to winter weather conditions, there will be no residential garbage, recycling or food/yard waste pickup in Seattle today, Monday, February 15, 2021.

Weather and road conditions permitting, garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste service will resume Tuesday on a revised schedule — with customers scheduled for pickup today (Monday) collected tomorrow. All remaining residential services will be delayed one day this week. For example, if your regular collection day is Friday, your garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste will be collected on Saturday this week. Customers should be sure to have their containers out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection.

If your materials are not picked up by the end of the following day, please put them out on your next regularly scheduled pickup 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.
