Mountlake Terrace garbage collection

Garbage collection in Mountlake Terrace was delayed last week to this week because of the ice and snow.

Waste Management will pick up double the amount of trash Wednesday at no additional charge. Excess refuse can be put in an extra can or a trash bag, but must weigh less than 55 pounds.

Depending on curbside pickup schedules for residents, either recycling or yard waste should be put out as well. Extra recycling should be in a cardboard box or paper bag, and not a plastic bag.

Some recyclable materials are accepted for free at the Snohomish County Southwest Transfer Station in Mountlake Terrace. It is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and can be called at 425-388-3425.
