There’s a revolution happening in the waste management world this week. New collection days! More recycling options! So if you’re like me and are trained to put your cans out on the curb on Tuesday nights for Wednesday pickup, you’ve got some retraining to do.
According to our informal survey, if you live south of Union, your new collection day is Friday. Those of you north of Union, including the bucolic Madison Valley, have a new collection day on Thursday. Refer to Seattle Public Utility’s handy website for the exact day for your address.
Here’s the other groundbreaking changes you’ll experience:
- Yard waste will now be picked up every week
- Recycling is still every other week
- No more recycling separation. Glass now goes in with the rest of your paper and plastic recycling (I guess I’m bad – been doing this for years)
- Got food scraps? It’s no longer trash. Put it in your yard waste cart instead.
