Looking ahead to next week, Seattle Public Utilities says all garbage, recycling and yard waste collections will be on a normal schedule on Monday, which is Presidents’ Day. The North Recycling Station in Fremont/Wallingford is also open for regular business hours, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
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) and save you the hassle of driving to the transfer station. The Recycling and Disposal stations accept bulky items for the same $30 fee.
If you want to recycle a refrigerator or a freezer, Seattle City Light will pay you $30 and pick it up for free. Call 1-877-577-0510 or visit www.jacoinc.net to schedule a pick up.
