Food and compostable paper, including pizza boxes, paper napkins and paper towels, are not allowed in the garbage.
By law, Seattle apartment and condominium properties of five or more units must provide a food waste collection bin for residents to use.
To subscribe, adjust the bin size, or report missed service or a missing liner for the bin, call (206) 684-7665.
A Recycling Volunteer educates residents about recycle, food waste, and how to reduce garbage. In addition to helping your community and the environment, the property will get a one-time $100 utility bill credit and could receive free kitchen bins.
Some properties may also wish to make compost at home. Composting on your property can save money and benefit the environment. However, no dairy or meat products should go in a home pile due to potential odor or pest problems. They are accepted in the curbside collection bin. Food waste such as pizza boxes, napkins, and paper towels should also go into the bin.
