No Garbage, Recycling Or Food/Yard Waste Pickup On Monday, December 27, 2021

SEATTLE — Due to winter weather and icy road conditions, there will be no residential or commercial garbage, recycling or food/yard waste pickup in Seattle Monday, December 27. Contractors will attempt to serve priority commercial locations.  

Significant snow and ice remain on residential streets, preventing safe solid waste collections in Monday service areas without risk to public, staff and property.  

Weather and road conditions permitting, garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste service will resume Tuesday, on a revised schedule, with Monday customers collected on Tuesday on a one-day delay. All remaining residential services will be delayed one day this week. If your materials are not picked up by the end of the following day, please put them out on your next regularly scheduled pickup day. Customers 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.  

For service updates, please check http://www.seattle.gov/utilities and Twitter: www.twitter.com/SeattleSPU.   In the event of snow and/or ice, City emergency planners urge residents to prepare their homes for cold weather, build emergency supply kits for homes and vehicles, and not to drive unnecessarily. For more information on how to prepare for winter weather, please visit the Seattle Department of Transportation’s winter weather website and Take Winter By Storm. Additionally, for up-to-date information pertaining to impacts in the City of Seattle, please sign up for alerts at Alert.Seattle.gov
