Garbage haulers go on strike

April 22, 2010: A strike Wednesday by Waste Management garbage haulers could affect garbage collection throughout Renton, although company officials have said they planned to hire replacement drivers in the event of a strike.

The drivers went on strike at about 10:30 a.m.

Allied Waste also serves a portion of Renton, but that hauler earlier reached an contract agreement with Teamsters Local 174.
