Waste Management recycling trucks are back on Skagit County roads today after drivers tentatively ended a strike initiated by Teamsters Local 117 in the Seattle and Everett areas.
The local has reached a tentative agreement on a new six-year contract with the company, according to its Web site.
That means drivers with Teamsters Local 231 out of Burlington, which was honoring the strike, are back to work today.
But because of the timing of the ratification vote by the Teamsters — scheduled for 9 this morning — recycling and yard waste collection will be limited.
The company is still asking its commercial and residential customers in Anacortes and throughout Skagit County to have their containers set out for collection.
Teamsters Local 117 recycling and yard waste drivers went on strike July 25 followed by garbage drivers with Teamsters Local 174. Teamsters Local 231 began honoring the strike on Tuesday.
