Waste Management Temporary Service Cutback
** Update - Normal Pickup Starts February 2 **
We got confirmation from Waste Management today (January 21) that full service will resume the week of February 1. We still have a week of reduced service to go: On Tuesday, January 26, your Trash and Recycling will be picked up, but not your Green Waste. All three types will be picked up on February 2. Here is Waste Management's communication to the City:
“Based on current conditions, this confirms our plan to resume weekly green waste and recycling service to all residents beginning the week of February 1. We will communicate this to residents through an out dial message and a postcard. I am working on the postcard copy and will forward for your approval before printing. We will continue our weekly check-in meetings thru February 18 and longer as needed.
Thank you for working with us through these unprecedented times."
– Teri Muse, Public Sector Solutions Representative
(Note: Reduced pickup is still in effect for the January 26 pickup - green waste will not be picked up)
Original Post - early January
Waste Management has a shortage of drivers due to workers quarantining and everyone taking extra safety precautions during the Covid-19 crisis. Over a quarter of their drivers are absent at any one time. To cope with the shortage, Waste Management has instituted a temporary cutback to the pickup schedule in San Dimas.
Trash will be picked up every week as usual, but recycling and green waste will be picked up every other week on a rotating basis. Teri Muse, Waste Management's liaison to San Dimas, emphasizes that this is only temporary, and the company hopes to return to the regular schedule after January. Here is their post with the schedule.
