Heat Modifies Start Time for Refuse Collections in York City

Due to dangerously high temperatures and humidity in our area expected the week of July 6th – 10th, all collections by Republic Services for Monday, July 6th through Friday, July 10th will begin one hour earlier at 5 a.m.

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.

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!
