City of Shoreline winter weather update February 7, 5pm 

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Puget Sound Region, including Shoreline. This is another significant storm that has the potential of even greater snow accumulation than the storm that came through last weekend. On top of the snow, there is also the potential for strong wind gusts.

City crews will begin 12-hour shifts on Friday, pre-treating streets with de-icer and then plowing and salt/sanding when snow begins to fall. If you do not need to be on the roads once it starts snowing, please stay home.

For the safety of our staff and the public we will be closing recreation facilities early on Friday. All facilities will be closed over the weekend. See below for more information.

Learn more about the City's response during a snow event and how you and your family can prepare at

Next update will be posted at 11:30 a.m. Friday, February 8.

Garbage, Recycling, and Food Scrap Collection

Due to weather conditions, garbage, recycling, and food scrap collection were cancelled Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 4 and 5. Customers who normally receive collection on Mondays and Tuesdays will be delayed by one week.

However, the weather forecast calls for more snow that may impact collection services for Monday, Feb. 11 and Tuesday, Feb. 12. This may result in an additional one-week delay for Monday and Tuesday customers.

Customers impacted by the snow delay in their collection service may pick up extra 55 gallon garbage and recycling bags at the locations listed below. Limit 2 bags per household. Please provide your address and/or proof of Recology account for pickup. Recology will try to collect as much as possible but may not be able to complete routes, depending on weather. Please protect your materials from blowing away by making sure bins are closed.
