Multifamily Residential customers are asked to place your tree next to your property’s garbage dumpster. Tree-cycling collection for multi-family properties will be: Mondays and Thursdays: Properties north of Forbes Creek Drive/NE 116th Street and Tuesdays and Fridays: Properties south of Forbes Creek Drive/NE 116th Street.
