Separating Household Trash and Recycling from Winter Storm

Our team at Waste Management is excited to be back on the streets serving our communities this week. Both your waste and recycle collection services will be provided as regularly scheduled this week.

The goal for this week is to utilize all resources available to serve as many people as possible. To ensure every customer is serviced, WM will only collect your regular allowable limits or collect items that have been placed inside the service cart.

Also, it is important to remember to separate your winter storm debris from your regular household garbage. Winter storm debris such as furniture, flooring, carpet, sheetrock , pipes, etc. is not included in your regular service. We are working with local authorities and municipalities to determine who will remove the winter storm debris and will post information as soon as it is available.

We will be working hard to serve the needs of all of our communities and appreciate your patience.
