Recology CleanScapes will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural holidays trees in lengths up to 4 feet this month.
Customers who subscribe to food/yard waste collection service may place trees out for collection on their regularly scheduled food/yard waste collection day.
Residential customers who do not subscribe to food/yard waste service may schedule collection of properly prepared trees during the first two full weeks in January at no additional charge. Contact customer service at 206.767.1166 or
at [email protected]  by Sunday, Dec. 31 to schedule tree collection.
Flocked trees are not accepted in compost collection because flocking contains non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardant, or additives. Flocked trees may be disposed as garbage for an additional fee.
Holiday Collection Schedule
Recology CleanScapes does not collect on Christmas or New Year’s Day. This year, these holidays fall on a Monday. If your regularly scheduled service falls during this week, you will be serviced one day later. For example, Monday customers will be serviced on Tuesday, Tuesday customers will be serviced on Wednesday, Wednesday customers will be serviced on Thursday, and so on.
Inclement Weather Issues
Winter storms could make it unsafe to collect customer containers. To find out about temporary service changes:
- Visit the recology.com/seatac website for service updates.
- Check your voicemail for a message from Recology CleanScapes about service changes.
- If your services schedule is disrupted, Recology CleanScapes will collect your containers when it is safe to do so, typically on your next collection day.
