WM Northwest
Recycling Collection

Recycling is collected from blue carts every other week on garbage day.

Recycling and Garbage Resource Guides and calendars are mailed each year.

WM Northwest
Food/Yard Collection

Food scraps and yard trimmings are collected weekly from green carts provided to subscribing residences.

Containers Out by 7 am

Collection times may vary as routing schedules change, and so it is very important to have all containers at the street by 7 am. We appreciate your cooperation.

Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.

Container Placement at the Street

Place carts:

  • Two (2) feet apart
  • At least three (3) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences
  • Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible
  • Cart lids opening toward street

    When possible, trucks with robotic arms will lift, empty and replace the carts without the drivers leaving the trucks, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestion.
