 &n......bsp; Snohomish County Solid Waste Facilities to be Open Regular Hours this Weekend
   Crews worked to clear excess garbage from facilities and avoid Sunday closure
   EVERETT , Wash . , September 23 , 2022– All Snohomish County Solid Waste facilities will be open this weekend during regular business hours after a significant effort by county staff to clear excess garbage piles and return facilities to operational standards of safety . This work eliminates the need for a scheduled Sunday , September 25 closure of Solid Waste facilities , including all transfer stations and drop boxes .
   “Our Solid Waste staff works tremendously hard , and most people do notice because everything runs so smoothly , ” Snohomish County Public Works Director Kelly Snyder said . “But this is just an example of how efficient they are and how much pride we have in the work they do . We expected this to take two consecutive Sundays and they cut that time in half . ”
   The scheduled closures were put into place to allow staff to load a buildup of excess garbage at the facilities into extra shipping containers and get it hauled out to landfills on railways . However , a combination of extra containers and the county staff’s hard work on the first Sunday closure and throughout this week , avoided the need for the second Sunday closure .
   “We also want to thank our partner organizations for the extra intermodal containers and their work in this process , ” Snohomish County Solid Waste Director Dave Schonhard said . “We still have to be careful about keeping our facilities at a proper safety level when it comes to volumes , but it is good to get back to a reset point . ”
   Snohomish County continues to work closely with Republic Services , Burlington Northern and Santa Fe
   Railway ( BNSF ) , Waste Management , and local solid waste haulers , to find immediate resolutions to
   the ongoing issues . Railway slowdowns and container shortages have caused issues with garbage transportation from Solid Waste facilities to landfills throughout 2022 . Piles of refuse pose a risk of fire and other dangers to staff and customers . Safety remains Snohomish County’s number one priority .
   Snohomish County has also temporarily stopped accepting yard debris at all facilities , as green waste and wood debris is being contaminated at Snohomish County facilities . This is also contributing to the backlog of waste in the facilities and uses valuable space in containers being transported for disposal in a landfill . The county is encouraging residents to take green waste and wood debris to alternate locations . A list of those local businesses is located at the end of the release .
   As always , please recycle , reduce and reuse as is available by seeking out alternatives to disposing of recyclable material , such as donating reusable household items to thrift stores and using online second - hand market places .  
   Here are the regular hours of operation this weekend for all Snohomish County Solid Waste facilities:
