RecycleBin

FOOD WASTE
Food scraps, soiled paper, and plants in the green food and yard waste bin.  Your food and yard waste carts will be emptied every week on your regular collection day. Seattle residential garbage service includes recycling and food and yard waste collection at no additional charge. Food waste should be prepared loose in your cart, or packaged in a certified compostable container inside your cart.*

RecycleBin

RECYCLE
Paper, bottles, cans, and most plastics (please place plastic bags together in one bag). Seattle residential, multi-family and commercial garbage service includes recycling collection at no additional charge. Recycling should be prepared loose in your cart, in clear plastic bags, or in a cardboard box next to your cart.*

LandfillBin

GARBAGE
What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, and broken glass to name a few. We aim to send as little material to landfill as possible. Garbage should be bagged and placed inside your cart.*

*Extra charges may apply for cart lids open more than 6 inches or bags left on the side of the cart.
