Garbage/recycling pickup days shifting during Christmas and New Year’s weeks

A white Christmas is looking unlikely. But your solid-waste pickup dates will be shifting next week and the week after because of the holidays, whatever the weather, if you’re a Seattle Public Utilities customer. No pickup on the next two Mondays – Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – so everyone will shift a day later both weeks – Monday customers get Tuesday pickup, Tuesday customers get Wednesday pickup, Wednesday customers on Thursday, Thursday customers on Friday, Friday customers on Saturday. Then the week of January 8th, everything goes back to normal. SPU also reminds you that it’ll le.take trees and holiday greens for free December 26th through January 31st – guidelines are here (along with charts detailing the temporary pickup-day changes).

    To folks with a Monday pickup: Don’t count on a delayed pickup. For at least the past few years, Waste Management hasn’t picked up the slack. You’ll see a story here on WSB that you get a free week of double-capacity trash and recycling.Now that I’m saying something it’ll be the first year they actually follow through on the adjusted schedule, but if past is prologue it’s important to prepare for 2024 starting with of double/triple trash.

Sorry, comment time is over.
