No worries about the garbage strike on this side of town

The Capitol Hill Blog posted an interesting reminder that the garbage strike that’s been talked about in the news lately isn’t likely affect most of us in the Central District:

The entire area between 520 and I-90 is serviced by the bright green trucks of Clean Scapes, and they’re not involved in the current labor conflict.

More from the Seattle Times:

A strike would affect about half the homes in Seattle — those that are served by Waste Management. The company also serves unincorporated King and Snohomish counties, and the cities of Auburn, Bothell, Burien, Federal Way, Kent, Newcastle, Maple Valley, Renton, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond, Carnation, Duvall, Mill Creek, Monroe, Arlington, Marysville, Granite Falls and Darrington.

Allied Waste serves about 100,000 homes and 8,000 commercial customers in King County.

A federal mediator has been called in to help with the negotiations Monday through Wednesday.
