Collections to begin one hour early at 5 A.M. On Tuesday, June 8th
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 on Tuesday, June 8th, all collections by Republic Services for Tuesday, June 8th will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m. in York City.
For Tuesday this 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.
During hot and humid weather, similar to this week, it is possible the City may 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.
