Garbage pick-up moved to following day for holidays

Republic Services (also known locally as Allied Waste), will not collect garbage, recycling and yard waste from its Puget Sound-area customers on Christmas Day (Tuesday, Dec. 25) and on New Year’s Day (Tuesday, Jan. 1).

Customers with a regular scheduled pick-up on these days will have their waste picked up the following day (Wednesday, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 respectively). Subsequent days during the workweek will be picked up one day later.

The company's normal collection schedule resumes the week of Jan. 7.
