Anybody have their trash/recycle/yard waste picked up today?
Tuesday trash pickup(15 posts)
Mine was picked up yesterday.
Been meaning to ask you if you are ready to get rid of your u-know-what you said was downstairs.
I'm needing one pretty bad giginitzell in yahooland
Let me know if you decided to keep it, so I'll stop pestering you ; )
We're by Adams Elementary, the recycling was picked up earlier this morning, still waiting on trash and yard waste.
We're by Whittier Elementary...
2PM...our food/yard waste has been picked up, but not the garbage yet. And we just got the robocall that recycling won't be picked up until next week. However, the city wants us to leave our carts out until 6PM Wednesday so they can count them and assess fines for Waste Management.
Waste Management Collections Resume
Expect Delays and Report Missed Collections
Last week’s Monday and Tuesday(July 30 and 31) recycling customers:
•Your recycling will not be picked up this week.
•But leave your recycling carts out this week until 6 p.m. on Tuesday (for Monday customers) and 6 p.m. on Wednesday (for Tuesday customers). This will allow our inspectors to record your missed recycling collection and assess fines to Waste Management.
•Your recycling will be picked up next week on your regularly scheduled pick-up day.
Garbage, yard waste and all other recycling customers should do the following:
•Put out all carts on your regular collection day before 7 a.m. No charge for extra items placed at the curb.
•Report missed collections after 5 p.m. on your collection day.
•Missed collections should be left out until 6 p.m. the following day.
Updated: August 7, 1:00 p.m.
They picked up the yard waste and the garbage is scheduled to be picked up. We just got a call from SPUD saying recycle won't be picked up until next Tues. Big bummer since that baby is full and we are hosting the block party for our street tonight!
GG - let me think about that and will email you back.
Edited - Chickster gave the details. Howdy, neighbor.
I was at my friend's house last night and they have Monday pick-up. The garbage was picked up around 6:30 or so, late by comparison. Prior to pick-up we saw a parade of five trucks barrel thru. I'm thinking they are pretty backed up and run out of room more quickly in those trucks. The amount of trash out in my neighborhood is astounding. I know we can throw out "double" loads with no extra fee, but c'mon people. Cleaning out the attic and garage is a bit excessive!
Yay! Garbage was just picked up...but I'm also bummed about recycling having to wait for the reasons Alonzo Neighbor gave. Have fun at your block party! We're over on Mary Ave having one, too. :-)
I just got a robo call from the city regarding pickup in the West Seattle area. They said we would have garbage pickup today, but that recycling would not occur until next Tuesday. They also asked that recycling containers be left out through Wed night so city people could count containers and assess how much of a find WM might have to pay for failure to pickup. Not sure if this applies to the Ballard area as well so take this with a grain of salt.
So far no robo call for Sunset Hill area. Sure hope all picked up today as overflowing! And today, of all days, not to have recycling picked up because of the Night Out events. Everyone enjoy your Night Out! Just read there are over 1,300 separate locals that do Night Out - more than ever.
gracie - love your avatar. She is adorable.
as of 4:45 all of our bins are empty!
Trash/Recycle/Yard waste all empty near the locks on 56th, also over on Sunset Hill. I did not feel the least bit guilty putting out construction debris from a current project.
As I drove to pick up my CSA veggies around 6:30 close to 24th, I saw lots of WM trucks trying to figure out a way to get past all streets closed by Block Parties.
Happy to report the remiang 2/3 of King Sized comforter I have been piecing out every week was picked up!!!
I noticed we didn't get a credit on our bill for the missed pick-ups. What does the city do with the huge fines they are getting from Waste Management?
We had a great time at the block party.
Alonzo...we're supposed to have our recycle carts out for pickup tomorrow (Sat). Did you get that new robocall for your street, too? We 're on Mary...
