Converting a per occurrence rate to a monthly charge.

It is considered that there are 4.3333 weeks in a month so you multiply the per-occurrence rate by 4.333.

Bad Weather Cancellation of Service

During periods of bad weather, Waste Management/Sno-King becomes very concerned about public safety and the well-being of its drivers who have to drive and walk in these hazardous conditions. When we are unable to perform collections safely, collection will cease temporarily. This information will be broadcast on KIRO 710 AM and KOMO 1000 AM. If you find that Waste Management has not collected your garbage, recycled materials, or yard waste on such a day, please store your material until the following week when your driver can safely collect two weeks worth of material.

Holidays

Waste Management/Sno-King does not provide service on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. On days after these holidays, your garbage will be collected the day after your normal collection day.
