Garbage, recycling and yard waste

Rabanco/Allied Waste and Waste Management customers: If you want to set out extra yard waste or garbage for pickup, you’ll be charged an additional fee — an estimated $3 to $8 for a 32-gallon can or bag, depending on where you live.

• If you live in Seattle, the city will collect extra storm-related yard debris at no charge through the end of December, even if you’re not a regular subscriber. Tree debris must be less than 6 feet in length and less than 4 inches in diameter.

For help with larger volumes that can’t be set out with waste containers, call the city’s Adopt-a-Street: 206-684-7647.

• Bellevue residents can take storm-related yard debris to Pacific Topsoils (1733 127th Ave. N.E.) through Jan. 14. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. today and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Christmas Eve. Closed on holidays. For more hours and details go to www.ci.bellevue.wa.us/5654.htm or call 425-452-6932. For free service, show proof of Bellevue residency.
