Tukwila residents have weekly collection for garbage and every-other-week collection for recycling. Customers subscribing to yard / food waste receive every other week collection on the opposite weeks of recycling. Residential collection day in Tukwila is on Friday.
WM observes three annual holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day (Dec. 25), and New Year's Day (Jan. 1). All other holidays will not affect your collection schedule.
Weekday holidays will delay collection by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday customers will be collected on Friday and Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.
WM offers carry out service at no charge for disabled customers. Carry out service is a service where the driver will roll carts down to the street or end of your driveway on service day and then returns them to the original location.
To qualify for no charge carry out service, the customer must be unable to move garbage, recycling or yard waste carts to the curb because of a health condition and live with no other person that can take the carts to the curb. The customer must provide a copy of their disabled parking permit or a doctor's note to verify disability.
