Well here’s some good news in light of the recent garbage strike (from the Seattle Public Utilities website):
Beginning Wednesday, August 1, garbage can customers who have been affected by the strike may drop off up to 6 bags of either garbage or yard waste in any combination at the transfer stations for free. Yard waste should not be in plastic bags. Recycling drop off is always free.Hours
8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., 7 days a week
Of course, that means waiting in line at the dump for however long; but hey, we at Friday North shouldn’t have to worry about trash buildup, right? After all, we’re recyclers!
By the way, did anyone else receive the robo call on Tuesday from a Waste Management striking driver named Brent about how we should all stay off the roads now that the striking drivers have been replaced? My 10 year-old listened to it and said, “Are the garbage trucks going to run over little kids?” Nice. Very nice.
Well, more good news is that Waste Management is telling residential customers to put out their trash today if they’re normally serviced on Wednesdays, so hopefully that means we’ll have service this Friday.
Just stay off the road, please!
