City Seeks Refuse Pickup Options Other Than Alleys

To help ensure the safety of its employees, the City of Yakima Refuse Division is currently looking at options for pickup locations other than alleys.

“This plan is a work in progress,” said Solid Waste Manager Trace Bradburn. “We will work with residents on a case-by-case basis as collection sites other than alleyways may not always be viable.”
