Seattle Public Utilities won’t be picking up garbage, recycling and yard waste for the second day in a row, because the side streets are too dangerous for its trucks.
Customers whose containers were not collected on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of this week will have them collected next week on their regularly scheduled pick-up day, and will be allowed to set out double their normal amount of garbage, yard waste and recycling at no additional charge.
When setting out extra waste, customers are encouraged to place perishable food items in their collection containers and set bagged, non-perishable items next to the containers.
On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, no garbage, food and yard waste or recycling collections will take place in Seattle. Collections scheduled for Thursday will occur on Friday, and Friday collections will occur on Saturday. Please be sure to have your containers out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection.
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) will continue to post service updates on www.seattle.gov/util. Customers can also reach SPU for information by calling Customer Service at (206) 684-3000.
