Even though Monday is the Presidents’ Day holiday, it’s still a normal garbage, recyling and yard waste pick-up day. So if your normal pick-up day is Monday, put it out by 7 a.m. just like usual.
And the North Recycling and Disposal Station in the Fremont/Wallingford area will be open on Monday during regular business hours: 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, such as refrigerators) and save you the hassle of driving to the transfer station. The North and South Recycling and Disposal stations accept bulky items for a $30 fee.
