MESSAGE FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT REGARDING GARBAGE PICKUP
As Tropical Storm and soon to be Hurricane Nicole bears down on the East Coast of Florida with an expected early morning landfall, There will be no WM collection operations on Thursday, November 10th.
Even though, the projected track is north of the Palm Beach County area, tropical storm conditions are expected to continue and widespread throughout Thursday morning into the afternoon, making a launch difficult and logistically impractical with the safety of all of our people, most important.
Based on the current storm track and speed, WM expects to resume normal collection schedules on Friday 11/11.
If your scheduled garbage collection day is tomorrow, WM will make the normal collection on the next scheduled collection day (Monday). If tomorrow is your scheduled recycling, yard waste or bulk collection day, WM will collect on the next scheduled collection day as well.
