Service Alert: Possible Weather-related Service Delays


Truck 60 in Snow

The current weather system moving through our area may cause weather-related service delays.

During times of unsafe road conditions, you may experience service delays or disruptions. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our team members and the public. SSC is committed to providing service to the best of our ability in areas that can be safely accessed. If we cannot collect material on your regular service day due to unsafe road conditions, please see the schedule below for your next collection. We will take twice the usual garbage or FoodPlus! at no extra charge:

Garbage: Collected the following week (inc. every-other-week and monthly customers). Use plastic bags for extra garbage.

Recycling: Collected on your next regularly scheduled day. Please place extra material next to recycling bins in an open cardboard box or plastic container (basket, bucket, etc.) no larger than a curbside recycling bin.

FoodPlus!: Collected on your next regularly scheduled day. Please place extra bulky yard waste (branches, etc.) next to your FoodPlus! toter. For smaller yard debris, food scraps or compostable packaging, please bag in a thick paper bag designed for yard debris or a compostable bag.

NOTE: Sudden Valley Customers: Visit for specific information for your community.

If you cannot wait until your next regularly scheduled pick-up, we will accept garbage and recycling, including extra material as detailed above, at no charge at one of our three Drop Box Facility and Recycling Centers located in Bellingham, Birch Bay and Cedarville.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we work to safely collect all materials during these times. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
