Winter Weather Update

UPDATE Wednesday, January 5

Message from Republic Services
After checking the streets and consulting the weather forecast, Republic Services’ operations leadership team has determined it’s most safe to DELAY residential solid waste collection services TWO HOURS and commercial ONE HOUR where it is safe to do so. Specifically to Sammamish, Republic Services is still checking routes and making plans for collections WHILE also getting two drop-off locations at Beaver Lake Park and East Sammamish Park established today. Read information on the drop-off locations here: www.sammamish.us/news-events/current-news?id=58702

As always this week, Republic Services wants to collect as much material as safely possible. Sammamish’s hyper-local road conditions beyond the arterials are still tough to navigate so Republic Services will provide an update on residential and commercial later this morning when their crews start making the rounds.

For questions, please contact Republic Services here:


UPDATE Tuesday, January 4, 5pm

The City of Sammamish and Republic Services have set up two drop-off locations tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5, in Sammamish for garbage and recycling for residential customers that have missed collection last week and this week.
