Snoqualmie garbage transition begins next week

The garbage service transition in Snoqualmie, from Allied Waste to Waste Management, is just around the corner. Although the new service will not officially change until June 4, Waste Management will be swapping out yard waste containers beginning May 21.

Snoqualmie yard waste customers should put out their full yard waste containers on their regular garbage collection day during the week of May 21. That means that even if next week is not your usual yard waste collection week, you need to put out your container. Another container will be left for you at that time.

All Snoqualmie residents and businesses will receive Waste Management information packets within the next week. The information includes your service options, rates, detailed recycling information, and an overview of the service transition process.

Second barbecue

Local residents and businesses are invited to a free community barbecue, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at Railroad Park, 7971 Railroad Ave. S.E.

At the barbecue, residents can find out about the services, containers available (including bear-resistant), and WM initiatives for reducing waste through increased recycling. There will be lots of games and activities for children, plus “Touch-A-Truck.  RSVP is optional, but appreciated, to dhumes@ci.snoqualmie.wa.us or 425-831-4919.

The Waste Management website now includes pages dedicated specifically to information for Snoqualmie. Visit www.wmnorthwest.com/snoqualmie. You may also get more information and direct questions to the customer service line at 1 (800) 592-9995.
