Thanksgiving changes Issaquah garbage pick-up
November 20, 2012
Customers should not expect regular garbage service on Nov. 22, Thanksgiving Day.
The haulers serving Issaquah do not collect garbage and recycling on the holiday. Instead, if a customer’s collection day falls on Thanksgiving, service is delayed one day.
So, for example, because Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, customers with garbage and recycling collection on Thursday receive Friday service the day after Thanksgiving, and Friday customers receive Saturday service after the holiday. The regular collection schedules resume Monday, Nov. 26.
CleanScapes collects garbage in most Issaquah neighborhoods. Allied Waste — a local name for national company Republic Services — hauls garbage in South Cove and Greenwood Point neighborhoods along Lake Sammamish.
Allied Waste also collects garbage in unincorporated King County communities, such as Klahanie, Mirrormont and Preston.
