For Waste Management to focus on essential waste collection and disposal during the COVID-19, or coronavirus, pandemic, the waste hauler is temporarily suspending the following services, which are non-essential during this emergency period:
Regular trash and recycling collections continue, but please note the following guidelines:
As always, electronics/TVs, chemicals and other prohibited items cannot be collected.
Waste Management is contracted with South Fayette Township for collection and disposal of household waste and recycling.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, federal and state declarations of emergency have been issued that recommend non-essential employees shelter in place and/or work from home when possible to promote social distancing. As a result, Waste Management has significantly reduced its field workforce and is focusing on the performance of essential services.
Because of its importance to the health and safety of our society, municipal solid waste collection and disposal is deemed an “essential service” in most instances, so Waste Management’s employees are continuing to perform this critical function.
When the declarations of emergency and social distancing recommendations have been eased and Waste Management’s workforce returns to pre-pandemic levels, these bulk/furniture and yard waste services will be restarted. Waste Management will provide notice when the service will resume.
