Due to the current weather conditions on Monday, February 22, the hauler has determined that it is no longer safe to operate today.
For blocks already collected this Monday morning, before the weather deteriorated, the hauler will NOT be collecting your block again tomorrow. On Tuesday morning, they will pick up where they left off, during the snowstorm, on their Monday routes.
The Remainder of Collections for This Week Will Operate on A 1-Day Delay as Follows:
- ONLY the remaining Monday area (only blocks not already collected this Monday morning) will be picked up on Tuesday, 2/23 (double bag limits and pre-scheduled large items from last Thursday and this Monday); Again, if you were collected Monday, before the weather deteriorated, the hauler will NOT be collecting your block again tomorrow.
- Tuesday collections will be picked up on Wednesday, 2/24 (double bag limits; and pre-scheduled large items from last Friday and this Tuesday)
- Thursday collections will be picked up on Friday, 2/26 (normal bag limits; and pre-scheduled large items from Thursday)
- Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday, 2/27 (normal bag limits; and pre-scheduled large items from Friday)
York City refuse customers are asked to be patient and to make special efforts during winter’s harsh weather to properly prepare all items placed for collection. Trash collection in good weather is a tough job. Wind, rain, snow and ice present many additional challenges for collection crews, often resulting in sprains and similar injuries, frostbite and even worse. Additionally, collections in inclement weather will take longer and crews begin work as early as 6 a.m. and may be collecting as late as 6 p.m.
What You Can Do to Help
- Place all trash in securely tied, heavy-mil bags (Max. 32 gals & 40 pounds) or in tied bags placed inside trash cans with tight fitting lids (Max. 32 gals & 40 pounds). (Note: no loose trash in cans)
- With snow, it is recommended that customers use dark colored bags, so they are visible against snow covered ground.
- Uncover and clear a path to all items.
- In cases of heavy snow accumulation, place items on top of, or in front of snow piles directly along the collection route, so they are easily accessible by collection crews.
- In case of wind, consider using just tied trash bags instead of placing them in trash cans that may blow into the streets before or after being emptied.
- Do not place unscheduled large-items or trash in excess of your bag limit. They will not be collected.
- Be sure all items are placed at the pick-up point by 6 a.m. the day of collection. Crews begin at 6 a.m. and will not return for items that are set out late.
