WINTER WEATHER TIPS

FOR OUR RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS:

Waste Management is committed to the safety of our drivers, our community, and your residence. To ensure we are able to safely and effectively service your container on days with snow and ice accumulations, please have the area and pathway around your container salted and cleared of snow and ice.

  • Unable to access container when it’s plowed in or covered with snow/ice
  • Container not visible by driver if placed behind a snow mound or inaccessible to the driver to reach safely
  • Steep hill or winding road that may be difficult to navigate during snow or ice conditions
  • No place to turn around due to areas not being plowed
  • Road closures
  • Wind chill factor which impacts the safety of our drivers and proper vehicle operation
  • Reduced visibility such as blizzard conditions, sleet, fog and hail

FOR OUR COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS:

Waste Management is committed to the safety of our drivers, our community, and your business. To ensure we are able to safely and effectively service your container on days with snow and ice accumulations, please have the area and pathway around your container salted and cleared of snow and ice.

Please remember that if your container is in a gated enclosure, you will need to ensure that the area is cleared of snow/ice and salted when the gates are fully opened. Keep lids closed to avoid snow inside the container which adds excessive weight and takes up valuable room. Salt the pins at the bottom of your gates to avoid freezing and the inability to open your enclosure. This is a good time to alert your snow plowing company of the steps they can take to help us service your container.

At Waste Management, we take pride in providing superior service to our customers. The following weather-related conditions may affect your collection:

  • Cannot open gates or access container due to deep or plowed in by snow
  • Snow/ice too deep to push container to truck
  • Steep hill or winding road that may be difficult to navigate during snow or ice conditions
  • No place to turn around due to areas not being plowed
  • Road closures
  • Wind chill factor which impacts the safety of our drivers and proper vehicle operation
  • Reduced visibility such as blizzard conditions, sleet, fog and hail

We will make every effort to notify you of weather-related service impacts. Please ensure we have your updated contact information including your email and phone number.
