Seattle says residents can dump garbage for free, extends offer to some businesses – Puget Sound Business Journal

Seattle Public Utilities is opening the city’s garbage transfer stations free of charge to residents whose garbage, recycling and food waste have gone uncollected due to a Teamsters drivers’ strike against Waste Management Inc.

Starting Wednesday, residents in Waste Management’s service area may drop off up to six bags of garbage and yard waste for free at the South and North transfer stations. Recycling drop-off is already free of charge.

To take advantage of the free service, customers must provide proof of Seattle residency, such as a drivers license or city utility bill.

While this move is aimed at residential customers, Waste Management already has been prioritizing collections for commercial customers using replacement drivers, said Susan Stoltzfus, an SPU spokeswoman. Still, Stoltzfus said, business owners who have city-resident identification can also drop off six bags of garbage and yard waste free of charge.
