Waste Management Asks People to Limit Bulk Yard Waste
Waste Management is asking residents in Copiah, Hinds, Madison and Rankin counties to limit the amount of nonessential waste they’re placing curbside as trash collection is expected to rise amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
The company said residential trash volume is likely to increase as people are sheltering-in-place, working from home and schools are closed.
Nonessential waste includes bulk and yard waste.
- Bulk waste includes furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc.
- Yard waste includes grass clippings, brush, tree limbs, etc.
Those items will continue to be collected, but Waste Management said there may be a delay in doing so.
“Rest assured, regular curbside collection of household waste will continue as normally scheduled. Please set containers at the curb on your regular collection day,” the company said in a news release.
