Jan 14, 2020 – Winter Weather Impacting Solid Waste Residential Customers

Unsafe, icy roads are impacting residential garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste collection today in specific areas. SPU contractors will run partial residential solid waste routes today, servicing residential areas where street conditions provide safe access. Most business and multifamily routes are running on normal schedule today.

Scheduled Tuesday residential customers in the Fauntleroy
and Delridge areas in SW Seattle and Ballard area in NW Seattle will not be
serviced today due to icy and unsafe streets. Other potentially impacted areas
may also include some steep blocks in Queen Anne, Magnolia, Maple Leaf and
Wedgewood areas. Customers not serviced today will be delayed until tomorrow,
Wednesday, to provide safe access

If your materials are not picked today, please leave them
out the following day. If they are not picked up by the end of the following
day, please put them out on your next regularly scheduled pickup day. Customers
who may be missed this week will be allowed to set out double their normal
amount of garbage, recycling and yard waste at no additional charge, on their
next scheduled collection day.
