Upcoming Holiday Trash Delays

Holiday Service Schedule

To allow our teams to celebrate Christmas Day and New Year’s Day with their families, we will be delaying service by one day during the holiday weeks. If your typical collection day falls on or after Wednesday, please put your cart out for collection one day later the weeks of December 23 and December 30, 2019. Remember to position your cart four feet from any other objects, including vehicles, fences, mailboxes and other carts, so that we can service it safely.

Safety is a core value at Waste Management and we want everyone to make it home for the holidays. Our Waste Watch-trained drivers are looking out for you on the road and in the community. They know your neighborhood and will report any unusual activity to local law enforcement. You can help deter potential thieves by breaking down boxes from recent purchases and putting loosely in your cart on pickup day. If you will be away, ask a neighbor to bring your cart back up. A cart left on the street may suggest that your home is unattended.

Please take extra care on the roads during this busy season. Slow down and allow extra following distance, especially when the weather is poor. Always buckle up and never use a cell phone when driving. Our drivers promise to do the same.

And when you recycle this holiday season, please remember to ONLY put clean bottles, cans, paper and cardboard in your recycling bin. Please keep lights, toys, clothes, bags, batteries, food and other non-recyclable items out of your curbside recycling cart.  

Thank you again for the opportunity to keep the community clean and green. We wish you a safe and joyful holiday season!
