City of Enumclaw Solid Waste Notice

Garbage Truck


Our number one value at the City of Enumclaw is the safety of our employees and our community we serve. We are closely monitoring the current situation and are following guidance from the CDC, WHO, and our state and local public health officials. We recognize that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has tremendous unknowns and is impacting businesses and our communities on a number of different levels.

We always recommend that all garbage contained in your cart or container be securely bagged to ensure efficient service and to help keep your immediate neighborhood clean and free of debris; during this crisis this is of utmost importance.

Bagging loose garbage helps ensure items do not litter the surrounding area when your garbage driver is servicing your cart or container, but more importantly, it will limit exposure to our employees. Effective immediately, garbage drivers will be instructed to not service any loose (not bagged) or unsecured garbage items outside of your cart or container. Further we are requesting that all garbage items inside your residential or commercial container be fully contained in properly sealed bags. This is a precaution during the COVID-19 crisis and we ask for your assistance to help keep our employees and community members safe.

If you have any questions regarding service, please contact us at 360-825-5541.
