Heat Affects Start Time for Labor Day Week in York City

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 (in the 90’s) and humidity forecasted for our area all week following Labor Day, Tuesday, September 4th through Saturday, September 9th, all collections by Republic Services this holiday week will begin one hour early at 5 a.m. in York City.

Due to the holiday, keep in mind that York City customers in the Monday/Thursday area will be collected beginning at 5 a.m. on Tuesday and Friday. Customers in the Tuesday/Friday area will be collected beginning at 5 a.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.

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.
