Garbage collection normal on Veterans Day

November 10th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Don’t forget to put out your garbage and yard waste tonight or tomorrow morning. Despite the Veterans Day holiday, Seattle Public Utilities has announced normal garbage collection on Thursday, Nov. 11.

However, most other government offices are closed, and the Veterans Day holiday also coincides with the November Seattle Parks and Recreation furlough. All facilities and offices will be closed Thursday, but the Northgate Community Center, 10510 Fifth Ave. N.E., also will be closed Friday, Nov. 12.

Other services and facilities that won’t be available Friday because of the furlough include grounds maintenance; all community centers (except child care and late-night programs, which will still operate); swimming pools; Environmental Learning Centers; Lifelong Recreation (except Food and Fitness programs, which will still operate); and the Business Service Center.

On Monday, parks  facilities and services that will be closed include administrative offices (communications, correspondence, Park Board support, Web management, public outreach, human resources, finance and administration); the Planning and Development Division; and the Magnuson Park office.

The Northgate Library, 10548 Fifth Ave. N.E., also will be closed Thursday in observance of Veterans Day, but as part of its regular hours it also will be closed Friday and Sunday.

In addition, King County Metro Transit will be offering reduced services, so be sure to double-check your schedule before you leave here.
