Updates on waste collection during winter weather are posted on the website for Issaquah's hauler:

When weather conditions prevent safe collection of curbside garbage, recycling or compost, a double load will be collected at no extra cost on your next regular collection day. If your containers are not emptied, please remove them from the curb until your next scheduled service day.

How to Package Extra Waste

Extra Garbage

  • Place garbage in securely-tied plastic bags next to the cart.

Extra Recycling

  • Place materials in boxes, bundle them or place them in brown paper bags and place next to the recycling cart.
  • Please do not place recycling in plastic bags.

Extra Compost

  • Label "compost" and place next to your cart. Yard debris can be placed in Kraft paper bags (available from hardware stores) or bundled with twine.
  • Please do not place food scraps outside of your cart or in plastic bags.
