Trash Pickup In Victory Heights On Friday This Week

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) reminds residents who usually have their trash picked up on Thursday (like most of Victory Heights) that due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday, the pickup will be on Friday this week. Recycling and disposal stations will also be closed on Thanksgiving.
Here are some fun facts:
What’s Seattle’s least liked Thanksgiving dish? Last year, giblets edged out green bean casserole and aspic as the dish Seattle residents would most likely put in their food and yard waste cart after the holidays.
Seattle residents can place all of their unwanted Thanksgiving leftovers, such as turkey bones, celery, yams, potatoes, fruitcake and paper napkins in their food and yard waste carts. The food scraps will be made into compost for local gardens and parks.
Don’t be a turkey- keep sewers fat-free! Property owners are responsible for their side sewer connections to the city’s sewer system. Sewer clogs often happen during the holiday season when disposing of leftovers.  You can prevent this by pouring used dairy products, fats, oil, grease or greasy foods into a lidded container and placing it in the trash – NOT down the sink drain.
Keep storm drains clear: To help prevent street flooding, the city is asking Seattle residents to remove leaves from storm drains in their neighborhoods with a rake or broom (if it can be done safely), collect fallen leaves in their yards, and compost or properly dispose of them in yard waste containers.
