We provide garbage, recycling, and food & yard waste (compost) services for Seattle in partnership with Waste Management and Recology. Also available are two transfer stations (dumps/landfills) for your extra waste.

You can request services online or look up your collection day and report problems with your containers. Check out tips on how to sort your waste into the right containers.
