The Association of Washington Cities publishes a great resource entitled Knowing the Territory. This is a good source of information to learn about the basic legal guidelines for elected officials including basic powers; duties, liabilities and immunities of public officials; ethical guidelines; the Open Public Meetings Act; public records law and more. The linked text above will take you to the pdf document.

Helpful Hints:

  • Be sure all items are accessible by 7:00 am to ensure pick up.

  • Only the above listed appliances will be accepted for the cleanup event. Place at the curb (sorry no alley pick up due to truck size).

  • Label/ID your extra yard waste so it is not confused as trash.

  • Do not exceed 45lbs per bag for trash or yard waste.

  • No tires or bulky items. All items must be contained in a bag.


Residential customers may set out extra recycling next to their recycling cart on their collection day (recycling week only).  Large boxes should be broken down and all additional extra recyclables should be placed inside a small to medium sized cardboard box for collection.  Extra recyclables can be collected at no additional charge. If you regularly produce extra recycling, you should consider adding an additional recycling cart.
