Transition Update: Leave Old Carts Out 24/7

about 2 months ago

Recology cartsSept 26: As a community reminder, Recology service begins on Mercer Island on Tuesday, October 1. Almost all of the 20,000 new carts have now been delivered and Recology is focusing on collecting any old carts from Republic that may have been missed over the past few weeks of coordinated swapouts.

In order to capture these scattered remainders, from this point onwards residents are asked to leave old carts out at the curb 24-hours-a-day until they are removed. Please ensure they are not obscured by vegetation or vehicles, and try to leave the old carts empty.

During the first few weeks of the transition, Recology will gladly collect extra volumes of all materials until residents have settled on their new collection schedule and any lingering old carts are removed.

Please call Recology's Mercer Island Hotline with questions, or to adjust service levels, at 206-381-6980.

To look up your collection schedule, or to view the materials that were in the Welcome Packet recently mailed to all residents, visit this Recology page (scroll down for collection map)

Thank you for your patience during this major adjustment!
