Yes, ’tis the season again as the new UW school year approaches and the yearly rental agreements expire. The UW remains proactive in concert with the SPI and so must we. SPU sets up a dump-off facility at 17th Ave NE and NE 47th St on thee median for only UW students in late Aug / early Sep. When you see illegal dumping on public property, which includes sidewalks, planting strips, alleys, street medians, traffic circles, etc., call Illegal Dumping at 206-684-7587. They will want the closest address and type/quantity of material. Pick-up time is normally much quicker in our area than the 10 working days advertised when calling in. Also, be sure to say it is the Uniiversity District area as we get faster service normally.
