December 31, 2013

In response to resident inquiries regarding recycling pick up during the holidays, Mayor Jeri Muoio’s office has contacted “Waste Management,” the private company that picks up recycling in the city.

Waste Management has told the Mayor’s office the company exercised its option to not pick up recycling for Wednesday customers on Christmas Day, and did not make plans to pick it up the following day.

Following conversations with the City, Waste Management will not skip another Wednesday pick up and will resume its regular Wednesday pick up schedule on New Year’s Day.

Customers who regularly have their recycling picked up on Wednesdays will have it picked up by Waste Management on January 1st.  All other recycling customers remain on their regularly scheduled days.

Regarding garbage pick up (which is picked up by the city), all Wednesday pick ups will be on Thursday, January 2nd.  All others remain on their regularly scheduled day.
