Heat Affects Collection Start Time In York City

Collections to Begin 1 Hour Early at 5 A.M. Thursday 8/26/21 & Friday 8/27/21

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 and humidity forecasted for our area the remainder of this week, Thursday, August 26 and Friday, August 27, ALL curbside collections by Republic Services will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m. in York City.

Keep in mind that during summer’s extreme heat, it is possible that the City may periodically approve days/weeks of collections to begin at 5 a.m.  For this reason, it is recommended during extreme heat to place items out for collection after 5 p.m. the evening prior to normal collection.  When 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.
