Waste Management and Teamsters Local 117 have reached a tentative agreement on a new 6-year contract. Teamster leadership and the bargaining committee will fully recommend that members approve the new contract at the ratification vote scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday at the Union Hall in Tukwila.
Garbage drivers will return to work in the morning and begin servicing their regular Thursday collection routes.
However, due to the timing of the ratification vote, recycling and yard waste collection will be limited.
All Thursday residential customers should place all of their regularly scheduled carts out for collection.
