Waste Management announces temporary change in service

Waste Management this week announced a temporary change in its service. To prioritize staffing for trash and recycle pickup due to COVID-19 impacts, green waste carts will be serviced every other week through January 31.

This change will not affect any other services. Waste Management will collect Christmas trees the two weeks following Christmas and will continue its curbside bulky waste program.

“Numerous service related providers that serve our communities across our county are being impacted by employees experiencing COVID related illnesses or quarantines,” stated Riverside County District 1 Supervisor Kevin Jeffries. “Our office has been informed that local trash companies have shortages of drivers and/or office staff. This is now impacting local trash pickup in some areas. This is on top of various first responder organizations that have had notable amounts of employees out on quarantine as well.”

For questions or additional information, contact Waste Management at 800-423-9986.
