During this pandemic, we understand that many households, being told to stay home, are doing some spring cleaning. We have noticed a huge increase in curbside waste. This increase is causing our employees to work longer hours to ensure everything is picked up in a timely manner.
Many haulers have cut services and are no longer taking compost or recycling. Emterra Environmental USA has not done this yet and will attempt to continue to keep all services intact, but we need your help to do so.
Our first priority at this time is the health and well-being of our essential employees. In order to keep them safe and healthy we are requesting that large spring clean ups (basements, pole barns, etc.) are not put curbside until the pandemic is under control.
Please put out your normal weekly trash (in bags and not exceeding 50 lbs.) and recycling only. Hold off on large items (bulk items) and additional waste until a later date. If we continue to see an increase we will be forced to do as other haulers and halt services for the time being. We do not want to do this, but we need your help.
While our prayers are with any person or family that has tested positive for Covid -19, we need those households to not put their household trash to the curb. Those households need to keep their waste within their own home, so that more people do not get infected.
We thank you for your understanding.
Stay Safe. Stay Home.
