Holiday garbage schedules set

Find out how your garbage and recycling pickups will be affected by Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

With Thanksgiving around the corner and winter approaching, Plateau residents should know how their waste and recycling schedules will be impacted.

In Enumclaw, garbage and recycling that’s regularly scheduled for pick-up on Nov. 22 will instead be picked up Wednesday, Nov. 21. Pick-ups on Friday, Nov. 23, will not be impacted.

On Christmas, residents who normally have their service on Dec. 25 will have their garbage and yard waste picked up Dec. 24.

For all Enumclaw residents with yard waste removal, trees will be picked up between Jan 7 and 11. Trees must be less than 6 feet tall and free of flocking and tinsel.

And for New Years Day, garbage and recycling services normally scheduled for Jan. 1 will be picked up Monday, Dec. 31.

For Bonney Lake and Buckley residents, services will be delayed by one day, even if the holiday doesn’t fall directly on your service day.

For example, those who normally expect service on Thursdays will have service after Thanksgiving on Friday, Nov. 23.

And even though Christmas falls on a Tuesday, normal pickup services scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 27 are delayed until Friday, Dec. 28.

The same goes for the week of New Year’s Day.

DM Disposal, which collects waste and recycling from Buckley and Bonney Lake, has not yet finalized when they may be offering tree pickup service after Christmas.
