Trash Pickup On Friday This Week

As it happens every year the week of Thanksgiving, trash collection in Victory Heights will occur on Friday this week instead of the usual Thursday pick up. Please be sure to have your containers out by 7 a.m. on Friday to ensure collection.
Customers can report a missed garbage, yard waste or recycling collection by calling (206) 684-3000 or by clicking on “Report Missed Collection” at SPU’s web site,
Compost Your Giblets: Seattle residents can place all of their unwanted Thanksgiving leftovers, including green bean casserole, aspic, mincemeat pie, 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: 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.
