Collections to Begin 1 Hour Early At 5 AM *Tuesday 5/31 And *Wednesday 6/1/22
Due to the Memorial Day holiday, all collections during that week are delayed by 1 day. If you normally place items for collection on Monday and Thursday, your pick-up days for this holiday week will be Tuesday and Friday. If you normally place items for collection on Tuesday and Friday, your pick-up days for this holiday week will be Wednesday and Saturday.
In addition to the holiday delay, dangerously high temperatures forecasted for our area during the first part of the week, all collections by Republic Services on *Tuesday 5/31 (in Mon/Thurs Refuse Area) and *Wednesday 6/1 (in the Tues/Fri Refuse Area) will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m. 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 and high humidity combined often result in heat-related illness like heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Prepare ahead. 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!
