City cancels waste collection on Friday

The City is suspending waste collection on Friday, Feb. 19, out of concerns for employee safety and protection of private property.

“Roads are still snow covered and slick in the neighborhoods, where our waste trucks must travel,” said Nancy Albright, Commissioner of Environmental Quality and Public Works. “Getting our large trucks in and out of tight spaces is difficult, especially when there are icy conditions.”

No City carts or dumpsters will be collected on Friday. Residents may leave their waste carts at the curb. Please keep the carts out of the street to make it easier for road crews.

Albright said Waste Management will return to its regular pick-up schedule beginning Monday Feb. 22.
