Tukwila Facilities Needs
Assessment and Feasibility Study

The City of Tukwila is developing the first comprehensive study of its major facilities.

This study will guide any future investment in City facilities.

Phase II Fire Exploratory Committee

The City formed the 2014 Fire Exploratory Committee (FEC) to research, evaluate and recommend options for providing fire and life safety services in Tukwila.

Extra Yard Waste Pick-up

If you have yard waste from the recent wind storm on Saturday, October 25, Waste Management will collect up to 96 gallons of storm debris – without extra charge – at your regular scheduled pick-up on November 7 and November 21, 2014.

Please bundle any extra yard debris that doesn’t fit into your original yard waste/compostable cart, or place debris in heavy-duty brown paper compostable bags, or into your personal garbage cans labeled as “yard debris.”

Please don’t put yard debris in plastic bags, and be sure that film plastic, plastic bags, metals, glass, leather and other contaminants aren’t mixed with the yard waste. These items are not compostable and create serious contamination problems.
