Trash collection resumes as Teamsters vote to end strike

Teamsters Local 117 voted this morning to end their week-long strike against Waste Management, restoring recycling and yard-waste collections throughout much of King and Snohomish counties.

Some collections are expected today.

Fines still will be assessed against the company for missed collections, according to a city of Seattle news release, and Mayor Mike McGinn has said those fines would go toward reimbursing customers.

Seattle residents served by Waste Management can continue to drop off up to six bags of garbage at  local transfer stations for free through Sunday. Recycling is always free to drop off. Residents also can put out extra material on their next regular collection day without being charged.
