FIRST REPORT, 3:48 PM: Just announced by Seattle Public Utilities – If the Waste Management strike caused you to miss a recycling pickup on Monday 7/30, Tuesday 7/31, or Thursday 8/2, you will get a catch-up recycling pickup THIS SATURDAY (8/11).
ADDED 5:26 PM: Susan Stoltzfus from SPU answered a couple questions we sent her after they were raised in the comment section, regarding next week’s schedule, plus a question regarding whether the catchup pickups are costing the city extra – and, she adds a reminder:
Regular collections for all customers are expected next week for garbage, food and yard waste, and recycling.
Our contract with Waste Management does not pay for overtime for drivers.
We would also like to remind your readers that the performance fees being assessed will be coming back to customers affected by the strike. We still have to get the total of the fees and finalize an equitable way to distribute back to the customers. Likely they will see a credit on a future utility bill.
