Waste Management said it is suspending all yard waste and bulk collection in Michigan until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Regular trash collection and recycling will continue as normal.
Here is a statement from the company:
“Effective immediately, Waste Management is temporarily suspending bulk collection, e.g., furniture, mattresses, appliances, toilets until further notice. Additionally we are delaying the start of our yard waste collection season. We are taking these steps to free up our personnel and equipment to keep up with the increasing amount of residential solid waste that is being generated at this time. Our first priority is to make sure we have capacity available to perform the essential services of municipal solid waste and recycling collection and disposal.”
The company said it will continue monitoring the current public health emergency, and that they will return to regular service when “the situation normalizes.”
