Trash Pickup

Waste Management of Savannah will begin collections on normal schedule for both recycling and trash tomorrow, September 13, 2017.  We plan to run our normally scheduled routes all week.  Wednesday routes  will be collected Wednesday.  Thursday on Thursday, and Friday on Friday.  Monday and Tuesday routes will be collected on normal schedule on Monday and Tuesday (18th and 19th).  Because Monday and Tuesday routes were not collected this week due to evacuations from Hurricane Irma, we will plan to pay close attention to extra waste outside of carts and collect this material as well.

Please place only recyclables into the recycle carts.
