Seattle Public Utilities will pick up extra yard waste for free during the month of November.
All customers are encouraged to rake leaves from storm water drains near their property to prevent flooding, and put it in their yard waste bins or extra bins or paper bags that will be picked up for free.
Fallen leaves can block storm drains and lead to flooding in neighborhoods. Raking leaves and keeping drains clear helps to prevent unnecessary flooding. As leaves continue to fall, residents are encouraged to check and clear their drains to keep the water flowing.
