As we prepare for inclement weather this winter, it is important to know the recycling and waste collection policies for our County. If severe weather conditions delay services for one day, those collections will occur after the following day’s regularly scheduled collections. For example, if weather prevents collection on your regularly scheduled Tuesday, then it will be collected after Wednesday’s regular collections. If a regular Friday collection is suspended, that collection will occur on Saturday. Missed yard trim collections on Mondays will be picked up the following Monday.
Residents scheduled with bulky trash appointments will be contacted and rescheduled within seven days. If severe weather conditions delay services for two consecutive days, collection will resume the following week on your regular day. For example, if weather prevents collection for Tuesday AND Wednesday collections, both Tuesday and Wednesday collections will be collected the following week.
The County will make every effort to post any information regarding delayed or suspended collections on the County’s website at mypgc.us or the Department of the Environment’s website at environment.mypgc.us, or you may contact CountyClick 3-1-1.
