Rates, billing and payments

All residents within the City of Seattle are required by the Seattle Municipal Code to subscribe and participate in garbage, recycling  and compost service.

Rates

The mandatory charge for all occupied and unoccupied dwellings applies whether the services are used or not. 

The most effective way to lower your rates is to utilize your recycling and compost containers so that you can use the smallest possible garbage container.

Bill Pay with your bank or financial institution

Most financial institutions offer free bill pay service to e-banking customers. Many of our customers prefer to set up a recurring payment via their financial institution. Be sure to include your customer identification number when setting up your recurring payment. We recommend setting your recurring payment to be mailed out mid-month to allow at least a week of processing time.
