Trash Services: 2/17/2021

From Waste Connections

Waste Connections is running today.  Monday and Tuesday residential routes will not run until next week. If we missed your residents this week we will take extra next week. 

Amongst the unprecedented weather conditions that we are experiencing we are doing our best to get the trash off the ground.  I would like to share a few obstacles that we face in a trash truck:

·       Hydraulics freeze and the arms of the trucks do not work

·       CNG fueled trucks fuel lines freeze up due to condensation

·       Diesel fuel turns to gel

·       Toters are frozen to the ground

·       Snow piled in front of Toters

·       We dump in a Quarry, this is very slick and adds approximately 30 min to dump time

·       Food waste in a toter freezes and stick in the toter

·       Takes longer to run routes based on road conditions
