Trash Pick Up Holidays

Sanitary Service Company (SSC) collection crews work all holidays that fall on a weekday.

Customers with a collection day that falls on a holiday should set out materials the night before to ensure pick-up. Collection on holidays is typically a little earlier than usual due to lighter traffic on area roads.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Bellingham and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
