Residential Curbside Garbage FAQs

Answers to your frequently asked questions about residential garbage service.

What should I do if my bin is not picked up?2022-12-08T10:33:25-08:00

It’s best to contact our office at (206) 842-4882.

What if a holiday falls within my service week?2022-12-08T10:33:59-08:00

Your service day becomes one day late for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Tuesday and your normal service day is Wednesday, then your new service day for the week is Thursday.

What if it snows or is too icy for pickup?2022-12-19T14:15:03-08:00
  1. During inclement weather we make all efforts to pick up as conditions safely allow.
  2. Place your garbage and recycle at the curb by 6:00am, on your regular scheduled day.
  3. If you cannot safely get your cans to the curb, please double up for the following week.
  4. If the garbage is not collected by 4:00 pm,  remove it from the curb, and set it out the following week.
  5. Recycle and Yard Waste rotate weeks and the schedule remains the same throughout the year.  During inclement weather and a missed pick up occurs, please refer to the pickup schedule calendar for your next regular or recycle or yard waste collection day.  This schedule does not change.
