If you are an Edmonds residential customer with garbage and recycling pickup scheduled for Monday, Feb. 11, all three companies serving the area said they have canceled service.
Sound Disposal, which collects in the Edmonds Bowl, provided pickup to commercial customers only Monday, said City of Edmonds Recycling Coordinator Steve Fisher.
“Snow and ice have by and large blocked their access to single- and multi-family customers so they typically try to get what’s been missed the next day if possible,” Fisher said. Customers can call Sound Disposal at 425-778-2404 or go to www.sounddisposalinc.com.
Republic and Waste Management both said they had to cancel their collection services to all Monday customers on Feb. 11 due to the ice and snow conditions. Republic serves all Edmonds customers outside of the Bowl, while Waste Management provides service to about 120 homes in an area to the northwest and the south side of Lake Ballinger
Monday customers of Republic Services and Waste Management already missed service a week ago — Feb. 4 — due to snow. The company will pick up triple loads on the next scheduled pickup day — assuming no more weather events, that would be Monday, Feb. 18 — at no extra charge
Recycling is a different story, though. For example, if your recycling was scheduled to be collected this week, and is on an every-other-week basis, the next pickup will be in two weeks.
