As the projected path of Tropical Storm Sally has further defined itself, Waste Management has decided to suspend service on Tuesday, September 15th. The schedule for the remainder of the week will be the following for each municipality:
Unincorporated areas of Hancock County – Service day will be pushed one day (Ex. Resident’s normally scheduled on Tuesday will be serviced on Wednesday and so on throughout the week). If the roads are impassible on the day that we attempt to recover the garbage, we’ll service on their regular service day the following week.
City of Bay St. Louis – No service on Tuesday, we will service on Friday.
City of Waveland – No service on Tuesday, we will service on Friday.
City of Diamondhead – Service day will be pushed back one day (Ex. Residents normally scheduled on Tuesday will be serviced on Wednesday and so on throughout the week). If the roads are impassible on the day that we attempt to recover the garbage, we’ll service on their regular schedule the following week.
Pending the condition of the roads after the storm, the service schedule for the remainder of the week for Diamondhead and Unincorporated Hancock County will be the following:
Monday service will not be impacted. We will run our regular schedule on Monday, September 14th.
No residential solid waste collection on Tuesday, September 15th.
Residents whose solid waste is picked up Tuesday, will be picked up on Wednesday, September 16th
Residents whose solid waste is picked up Wednesday, we be picked up Thursday, September 17th
Residents whose solid waste is picked up Thursday, will be picked up Friday, September 18th
Residents whose solid waste is picked up Friday, will be picked up Saturday, September 19th
Please secure your garbage cans, carts, bins, bags and any other loose items this evening and throughout the night. Upon further evaluation after the storm, Waste Management will work with each municipality to identify impassible roads to ensure our drivers safety. As soon as the roads are passible, we sweep all areas on Friday to ensure waste is collected that was missed on Tuesday.
