Collection

All of your containers should be placed for collection by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. If you are unsure of your collection day, call Waste Management/Sno-King at (800) 592-9995. Please be sure to remove your containers once they are emptied.

Missed Service

To report a missed collection, please contact Waste Management/Sno-King at (800) 592-9995. There is a small return trip charge if you failed to have your containers set out for pick-up by 7:00 a.m. on collection day.

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.

Following Christmas, Waste Management uses additional trucks to collect only mixed wastepaper. Don't be worried if the newspaper, bottles, and cans are collected separately from the mixed waste paper. It will be collected on the same day, but just at different times.
