Collections to Begin 1 Hour Early

Collections to Begin 1 Hour Early at 5 AM Monday 6/28 - Friday 7/2/21

Physical labor during extreme heat poses increased risk to outdoor workers who must protect themselves against sun and heat exposure.  Hot temperatures and high humidity combined often result in heat-related illness like heat exhaustion or heat stroke.


Due to dangerously high temperatures (in the 90’s) and humidity forecasted for our area during the week of June 28th through Friday July 2nd, all collections by Republic Services for that week will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m. in York City.

During summer’s extreme heat, it is possible the City may periodically approve days of collections to begin at 5 a.m.  For this reason, it is recommended to place items out for collection after 5 p.m. the evening prior to normal collection.  If a 5 a.m. start time is approved for specific dates, the crews will not return for items placed out after 5 a.m.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
