Waste Management to Become Solid Waste Hauler in SE Portion of Auburn’s Pierce County Annexation Area October 1

The City of Auburn’s contracted solid waste hauler, Waste Management will assume collection and disposal of solid waste on Oct. 1 in the southeast portion of the Pierce County Annexation Area. This area includes the communities of Portola, Portofino, The Reserve, and Northlake. This area was annexed via Ordinance #5932 in 2005.

At the time this area was annexed into the city limits of Auburn, Murrey’s Disposal had a G-Certificate to operate in the area. The law provides that existing franchises are in force for a period of at least seven years following annexation. The franchise period has expired and Murrey’s Disposal will discontinue service on Sept. 30.

Residents in the Pierce County Annexation Area will be billed by the City of Auburn for solid waste services effective Oct. 1. Residents in this area will now have recycle collection at no additional cost (including glass bottles and jars), weekly compostables (yard waste, food + food-soiled paper) collection with subscription, and monthly billing.
