Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Federal and State Declarations of Emergency have been issued that recommend non-essential employees shelter in place and work from home when possible to promote social distancing. As a result, Waste Management has significantly reduced its “field” work force and is focusing on the performance of essential services during this unprecedented emergency. Because of its importance to the health and safety of our society, municipal solid waste collection and disposal is deemed an “essential service” in most instances, and so Waste Management’s employees dedicated to collecting and disposing of trash are in the field continuing to perform this critical function.
In order for Waste Management to maintain its focus on municipal solid waste collection and disposal, and due to the reduced number of employees in the field, effective Monday, March 30th, 2020, Waste Management is temporarily suspending the performance of the following services, which are non-essential during this period of emergency:
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE BULK ITEMS TO YOUR DESIGNATED DISPOSAL AREA OR DUMPSTER AREA UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
THESE ITEMS INCLUDE:
- Bulk Items such as – furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc.
- Any large items as a result of Spring Clean-ups.
When the Declarations of Emergency and social distancing recommendations have been eased and Waste Management’s work force returns to pre-pandemic levels, these services will be restarted. RHA will provide notice when the service(s) will resume.
Waste Management and the RHA apologize for such short notice and thank you in advance for your cooperation during this critical time.
