Garbage, recycling and compost for homeowners

Garbage, recycling and compost for homeowners

Alert -- Inclement weather notice for week ending February 16th - Updated 2/12/19, 3:35 PM

No residential waste collection Tuesday, February 12th due to significant snow and remaining on the streets. SPU's contractor is working on a two-day delay right now, so a Tuesday recycling collection will likely take place Thursday. 

We will attempt to collect garbage and compost for New Holly on Thursday, High Point on Friday, and Rainier Vista on Saturday.

Missed Collections: We understand that some customers will have accumulated significant trash due to one or more missed pickups. Customers who have had one missed collection will be permitted to leave out extra bags equivalent to double the normal amount of waste allowed, and those who have missed two collections will be permitted triple the normal amount.
