If you don’t know your collection day, call Customer Service at (206) 684-3000.

You can report a missed garbage or recycling collection after 5 p.m. on the day it was missed. It will be picked up within two working days. Call (206) 684-7665.

If you need to dispose of furniture or appliances, contact your building manager about scheduling a bulky item collection. See Extra Garbage & Bulky Items.

You can set out used motor oil or select electronics for free pickup. Check with your manager for details and guidelines.

Why waste a good thing?

Before throwing something in the trash, consider if you can recycle or reuse it. Even food scraps and yard waste can find a second life as compost. Items such as building materials, vehicle batteries, and tires can be recycled at the Recycling & Disposal Stations.
