Commercial Customers


Garbage is collected by the City of Anacortes. Please contact Solid Waste at 360-293-1921 to report missed pick-ups or to request tote or dumpster service level changes. For all other questions about garbage, please contact Utility Billing at 360-293-1909.

Temporary Dumpsters may be rented by commercial customers using the forms on the Utility Services home page. The deposit must be paid before dumpsters will be delivered.

Recycling and Organics

The City of Anacortes contracts with Waste Management to collect both recycling and organics (yard waste) for residential customers; however, not for commercial customers. Commercial accounts may set-up recycling and organics directly with whomever they choose for these two services and thus be billed directly from the company (not through the City billing).

Contact Utility Billing at 360-293-1909 before contracting for recycling service to verify whether the company you have chosen bills customers directly or through the City of Anacortes.

To report missed collections, to inquire about acceptable items for recycling and organics totes, or to request tote replacements please contact Waste Management directly at 800-592-9995.

Pick Up

Check the Route Schedule Map to determine which day of the week your refuse will be collected. All totes and dumpsters must be positioned for pickup at the curb or in the alley by 6 a.m.

Accounts with permanent dumpsters may schedule multiple pickups during the week.
