Sh Collections Begin One Hour Early at 5 Am in York City Due to Continued Extreme Heat & Humidity the Remainder of July

Summer’s heat and humidity continue with July predominately forecasted to be in the 90’s. Trash collections will begin at 5 am for the remainder of July 2024.

Trash collectors may begin collections one hour early, at 5 a.m. Collections starting 1 hour early, at 5 a.m., means one less hour of physical exertion during the peak temperatures of the day.

We know that physical labor, like continuous walking, bending, and lifting, during extreme heat poses increased risk to outdoor workers. When these conditions are combined, it can often result in heat-related illnesses like heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Now through Wednesday, July 31st all City Contract collections by Republic Services may begin as early as 5 a.m. Customers must place items out after 5 p.m. the night prior to collection and by 5 a.m. the day of collection. The hauler will not return to collect items placed out after 5 a.m.

Let us acknowledge the hard work of trash collectors and ensure their well-being during this challenging heat wave. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
