Heat Affects Start Time for Collections in York City

Collections to Begin 1 Hour Early at 5 A.M. Week of July 27th – 31st

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

Due to dangerously high temperatures and humidity in our area for the week of July 27th, all collections by Republic Services for Monday, July 27th through Friday, July 31st will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m.

For this upcoming week, York City customers must place all items for collection after 5 p.m. the evening prior to collection and no later than 5 a.m. on the day of collection.  Crews will not return for items placed out after 5 a.m.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation
