SULTAN GARBAGE PICK UP DAY TO CHANGE
July 28, 2009
(SULTAN, WA) -- At the Sultan City Council meeting on July 23rd, the council authorized city staff to changed the Tuesday garbage collection to Thursday beginning September 1, 2009.
The sultan transfer station - managed by Snohomish County Solid Waste - is changing its hours of operation to Thursday through Monday, 9am-4pm so Sultan must change its Tuesday garbage collection route to Thursday to dispose of garbage at the transfer station.
A decision to keep the Tuesday pick-up would require the city to transfer its garbage to Cathcart landfill and incur $10,400 in additional fuel and staffing costs.
