Garbage pickup on Saturday, other Thanksgiving tips from SPU

Seattle Public Utilities offers the following reminders and tips for a safe and green Thanksgiving weekend.

  • Friday's garbage and food/yard waste collections for our neighborhood will be on Saturday this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
  • Unwanted Thanksgiving leftovers go in the food and yard waste cart. Even giblets.
  • Prevent sewer backups- keep fat, oil and grease out of the sink drain.
  • Prevent flooding by keeping leaves out of the storm drains.
  • Seattle uses approximately 292 million plastic bags annually. Bring your own reusable bag if you go out shopping this weekend, or recycle the ones you receive.
