McGinn to announce settlement with Waste Management

Tuesday morning Mayor Mike McGinn will announce how much money Waste Management will owe Seattle customers for missing eight days of trash pickup during the Teamsters Union strike that started in July.

McGinn will detail exactly how much Seattle Waste Management customers will be credited on their solid-waste bills after completing a settlement agreement with the garbage company. During the strike, Seattle Public Utilities warned Waste Management that it could face contractually imposed fines of up to $1.25 million a day.

In addition to having inspectors check for missed trash during the strike, McGinn encouraged citizens to report missed pickups via Twitter with the hashtag #theymissedme.
