The Burien City Council on Sept. 16 voted to enter into a contract for collection of garbage, recycling and compost/yard waste with CleanScapes, a Seattle company. Service will begin under CleanScapes on June 1, 2014. The new seven-year contract replaces the current contract with Waste Management which expires on May 31, 2014.
