Residents in north Mukilteo will have a new collection day starting March 1. Residents who have their garbage, recycle , and yard waste collected on Thursday will be moved to Tuesday. According to Waste Management, this re-route is being done for a couple of reasons:
- To improve customer service by having the same driver each week and consistent service collection time. The driver will be a single point of contact who will get to know their customers, their preferences, and service them better throughout the year. The route is currently assigned to various trucks and drivers who are available to cover it.
- The re-route will enable us (Waste Management) to use our (Waste Management) trucks more efficiently, save fuel and reduce emissions for a smaller carbon footprint.
