COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Company Update - March 25, 2020



As of Wednesday, March 25, 2020, following the Stay Home, Stay Healthy, order from Governor Inslee and the State of Washington, SSC, as a sanitation company, is deemed an essential service.

All residential and commercial garbage, recycling, and FoodPlus! service will continue as scheduled. All updates we have issued prior related to the COVID-19 pandemic remain in effect. Please help us at this time by considering these tips and reminders:

• Place containers out for pick-up the night before collection.
Trucks can run ahead of schedule due to lighter traffic.
• Please bag all trash. Please do not bag recyclables.
• Place Toters at the curb with the handle toward the house.
• Keep 6 feet of clear space around all containers.
• Moderate quantities of extra recyclables can be placed next to recycling bins in an open cardboard box or plastic container (basket, bucket, etc.) no larger than a curbside recycling bin.
• If windy, set out each recycling bin on the ground.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding at this time. Please continue to visit our website news or FAQ page and connect with us on Facebook for the latest updates.
