New Cart Delivery for Mercer Island Residents!

Throughout the month of September, Recology will deliver new carts to residential homes in Mercer Island. Garbage carts will be black, recycling carts blue and compost carts green. Removal of your old carts will occur at the same time. However, please note that you will not receive ALL of your new carts at the same time. Please also note that personal cans will NOT be removed.

To ensure cart delivery, please leave your old carts at the curb until 5pm on your collection day. Old carts may be retrieved later in the day after they’ve been emptied. We will be working to replace carts throughout the month of September. Republic Services will continue to provide collection in September with your new Recology carts.

As a reminder, your compost collection pick-up schedule will change from every other week to weekly starting October 1. With more frequent compost collection, you may require fewer compost carts. Please fill out the Compost Cart Modification Form if you would like to update your service to add or remove compost carts.
