Waste Management has significantly reduced its “field” work force and is focusing on essential services during this unprecedented emergency.
In order for Waste Management to maintain its focus on municipal solid waste collection and disposal, and due to the reduced number of employees in the field, EFFECTIVE TUESDAY MARCH 24, 2020, WASTE MANAGEMENT IS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE FOLLOWING SERVICES WHICH ARE NON-ESSENTIAL DURING THIS PERIOD OF EMERGENCY:
BULK COLLECTION – furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc.
SPRING AND BULK CLEAN-UPS
YARD WASTE COLLECTION – grass clippings, brush, tree limbs, etc.
All trash/refuse must be bagged and sealed (and wherever possible) placed in containers. LOOSE ITEMS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
All recyclable materials must be placed inside recycling bin. ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE THE BIN WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
Waste Management will enforce bag limits (10) as reflected in our current contract.
When the Declaration of Emergency and social distancing recommendations has been eased and Waste Management’s workforce returns to pre-pandemic levels, these services will be restarted. Waste Management will provide notice when the services return.
