Solid Waste Collection Resumes Today
After being delayed because of Sunday’s and Monday’s snowfall, the city’s solid waste service will resume today.
Residents serviced by City of Memphis Solid Waste Management whose normal collection days are either Monday or Tuesday will receive garbage and recycling collection today. Excess trash and yard debris collection will be limited while crews address garbage and recycling only.
Crews will be working to complete Monday and Tuesday routes today; however, should weather, street conditions, or time prevent completion, residents are instructed to leave carts at the curb. On Wednesday, crews will begin where they left off.
In the contract area serviced by All Star Waste Systems, garbage and recycling will be delayed one day all week. Therefore, Monday homes will receive collections today. Tuesday will be collected on Wednesday, etc. There will be no collection of excess trash and yard debris on Saturday.
Public Works regrets any inconvenience the altered schedule may have caused and wishes to thank the Memphis public for their patience and cooperation during this recovery effort.
