Rat’s Nest (officially, the North Seattle Garbage Center in the 2050s, the North Seattle Refuse Center in the 2060s, and the North Seattle Refuse and Reclamation Center in the 2070s) is a huge, open air garbage dump, located to the north of the Snoqualme River and bordering the Salish-Shidhe Council lands.
The Council often complains about the garbage center leaking pollutants into the Council lands.
It is an unofficial home to a community of thousands squatters, known as trash rats or gomi-nezumi to the local Yakuza. The name of this neighborhood comes from the group of Rat shamans who are prominent among the local squatters.
