Waste Management has 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.

Please Note:

•             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 (including cardboard). ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE OF BIN WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.

 •             WM will enforce (bag and/or cart limits), as reflected in our current contract.

When the Declarations of Emergency and social distancing recommendations have been eased and Waste Management’s workforce returns to pre-pandemic levels, these services will be restarted. Waste Management will provide notice when the service(s) will resume. 

We have been a part of this community for many years and know that together we will be resilient. Thank you for your partnership during this critical time.

We are temporarily suspending residential bulk waste collection service effective March 30.  

Regular trash and recycling services will remain on schedule.

All trash must be bagged and, perferably, placed in trash cans. Recycling must be kept loose and placed in recycling containers.

We will continue monitoring the nation’s and state’s response to this public health emergency. When the situation normalizes, we will resume bulk waste collection.  Residents should continue to check their municipality websites for more information.
