Seattle Offers Free Extra Yard Waste Through November

In an effort to get household customers to clear leaves from storm drains, Seattle Public Utility (SPU) will allow for free extra yard waste during the month of November.

Fallen leaves block storm drains and lead to flooding.  Raking leaves, and clearing yards and streets of tree detritus, allows for the flow of rainwater into drains rather than backing up over sidewalks and into homes.

SPU customers can set out extra leaves in paper bags or containers that contain only yard waste.  Extra leaves will be picked up during November on regular collection day.  For more information on where to dispose of household hazardous waste, visit the HazWasteHelp.org site or call 206-296-4692.  Find out more about SPU services on the Seattle.org/util website.

On Sundays, through December 10th, The Hallows Church will be collecting winter coats and gear for 80 homeless students at Chief Sealth High School.

The Hallows Church, which gathers for Sunday worship at the Fremont Baptist Church, also has gatherings in North Seattle and West Seattle.  Through the West Seattle expression, the community has partnered with a Seattle Public High School to prepare students in need for the upcoming cold and wet weather.

Gently used winter coats and hoodies, in sizes M, L, and XL are needed, in neutral colors of grey and black.  Hats, gloves and warm socks are also appreciated.

Donate items at The Hallows Church Fremont Expression before, during or after worship on Sundays at 5p.  For more information, contact info@hallowschurch.org
