Two service options are available for food and yard waste service at multifamily properties:
Carts with food and yard waste can be heavy and are best serviced on a level surface area. Use caution when pushing heavy food and yard waste carts to the street curb.
Please call (206) 684-7665 for all multifamily service requests or complaints (missed collection, compostable liner bags, change in service, etc.).
Food scraps, yard waste and food-soiled paper (including paper towels, paper napkins, pizza boxes) are NOT allowed in the garbage. Put all of these items in the Food & Yard Waste cart.
