Waste Management reporting high volumes of garbage along routes

Published 12:42 pm Monday, February 22, 2021

Waste Management resumed regularly scheduled collection services Monday after a severe winter storm forced the cancellation of much of last week’s service.

Monday afternoon, Waste Management reported crews were seeing high volumes of garbage and trash along all routes, which may cause some additional delays in service.

“Waste Management thanks our valued customers for their patience and cooperation during this weather event,” said Jim Funderburg, senior district manager, Waste Management Gulf Coast.
