The Public Works Solid Waste Division provides garbage pick-up to 9,500 homes, hauling 950 tons of garbage and recycling per month, and is one of only two cities in Snohomish County that provides citizens with service at a rate competitive with regional private solid waste companies. Collection charges include recycling under a contractual agreement with Waste Management Northwest.
Garbage is picked up weekly, Monday through Friday. Garbage is collected every official holiday except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. If you service falls on one or more of these days, your garbage will be collected on the next day.
If you have a question about your collection day or any other issue, please contact the Utility Building at (360) 363-8001.
