Auburn’s waste haulers are offering options to customers as the city clears snow- and slush-caked curbs for pickup.

Republic Services is providing two free dropoff locations for your household garbage only.

Republic Services will collect garbage at the following locations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday:

• West Hill customers – Interurban Trail Parking Lot, 37th Street Northwest (just east of I Street Northwest)

• Lea Hill customers – Auburn Golf Course – north end of parking lot at 29630 Green River Road SE

Republic Services will accept up to twice as much material as you normally put in your cart. Please bring a recent copy of your Republic Services bill to verify service.

If you choose not to use the dropoff location, you may set out up to three times your usual amount of material on your next regular service day, at no additional charge.

Waste Management is providing a convenient dropoff location for your household garbage and recycling at the WM district facility at 701 Second St. NW, Auburn, available Feb. 12-16, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Dropoff material is limited to household garbage and recycling. We will accept up to twice as much material as you normally put in your cart.
