Trash Pick Up

waste management truck collection

Effective March 18th Waste Management’s customer service centers are closed temporarily as they actively coordinate to implement remote home bound operations for employees impacted by COVID-19.
See attached notice from Waste Management

Waste Management – and especially our hard-working front-line employees – are working around the clock to ensure that we can continue to serve our customers and communities safely and with the least disruption reasonably possible in the face of the many challenges created by the COVID-19 virus, the resulting Declarations of Emergency, and the many health and safety orders and guidelines to which all responsible citizens are attempting to comply. As Waste Management works earnestly to continue to provide collection and processing services to our communities, the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities are our highest priority. 

We are pleased to inform you that the collection of bulk items that are called in, scheduled and paid for in advance will begin again the week of Monday, May 11, 2020. To help continue keeping our people safe all trash must be bagged and inside the cart.. Due to anticipated heavy volumes during the week some bulk stops may not be picked up on the regular service day. Waste Management crews will work to recover the material as quickly thereafter as possible based on crew availability.

No one can reliably predict the length of this emergency event, when potential service disruptions may occur, including another suspension of bulk collection and other services, or how long they may last. Waste Management will continue to provide prompt notice of our operational capabilities and changes as they occur. 

We especially appreciate your understanding and support to help keep our drivers and their families safe during these challenging times.
