Quick update to yesterday’s post about garbage pickup in the wake of the this past week’s blizztastic weather event. As of 9:00 PM Thursday night, SPU is now advising:
- Monday, Thursday, and Friday customers who have not received service are asked to put their garbage bins and bags out at the curb beginning Friday, Feb. 15, for pickup Friday or Saturday. Customers may put out double the usual amount of garbage at no additional charge.
If you have somehow managed to collect so much trash that you are unable to wait for regular pickup (perhaps you were taken up in the pre-storm shopping frenzy and overdid it a tad), SPU is also offering free garbage dropoff:
While we will be working hard to pick up residential garbage, we will also provide free garbage (no recycling or compost) drop-off sites on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 10 am-3 pm in the following four locations:
Lower Woodland: 50th and Whitman
Magnuson Park: 65th street lot, Parking Lot E
Interbay: 17th Ave. W. And W. Barrett Street
West Seattle Stadium: 35th Ave SW & SW Snoqualmie St.
Free Transfer Station Trips:
Throughout this weekend, residents whose collection has been delayed can also drop off a load of garbage, recycling, or compost at SPU’s north or south transfer stations for free. There is a limit of one truck or carload per household up to 420 pounds of combined garbage, recycling, and compost.
North Transfer Station is at 1350 N 34th St, Seattle, WA 98103
South Transfer Station is at 130 S Kenyon St, Seattle, WA 98108
