Garbage was apparently picked up in Burien Wednesday (Aug. 1) by substitute drivers, and Waste Management says that regular residential service will resume next week.

“Waste Management will collect additional material on your next regular service day at no additional charge and are working diligently to expand our service capacities,” reads a note on their website. “Additional WM substitute drivers continue to arrive, which will provide additional service capacity.”

To check the latest service update, check out WM’s website here.

We’re curious – did any of our Readers get their garbage picked up today? Please leave a Comment below…

    Garbage wasn’t picked up everywhere in Burien. As far as I can tell, nothing at all has been picked up east of SR509, and it’s 6 p.m. already.

  2. InfoManiac says:

    According to the WM website, only people who normally have service on Wednesdays were picked up today. Everyone who has a different service day (i.e. Monday) won’t get picked up til the next service day, and all additional bags will be picked up at no charge.

    Our garbage was picked up, we’re west of 1st Ave S., near 134th St.

  4. Ace says:

    I am also east of SR509. No garbage pick up on 8th Ave S today….

    Wed is a regular pick up day for our condos near 4th Ave SW & SW 155th St. No pick up yet and it STINKS! Is WM going to pay for exterminator services if we get rats? And if we usually get pick up 3 times a week, how the heck do we put out “twice as much garbage at no charge?” There’s no place to put it you idiots!

  6. Rob says:

    No pick up for 134th and 6th ave.

  7. John Poitras says:

    No pick up on SW149th or SW152nd

    Its somewhat disingenuous of them to say they will pick up the garbage that we paid them to pick up this week… next week at no charge like they are doing us a favor?!%$#
