Self-Service Litter Cans

Businesses and community members who want to help keep Seattle clean are encouraged to install privately owned and serviced litter cans for use on the sidewalk in places where SPU does not service litter cans.

Community responsibilities:

  • Empty the can on a regular basis and dispose of the contents
  • Prevent the can from overflowing onto the sidewalk
