Request to Securely Bag Your Garbage Upon Disposal
Dear Valued Customer,
Our number one value at Waste Connections is the safety of our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve. We are closely monitoring the current situation and are following guidance from the CDC, WHO, and our state and local public health officials. We recognize that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has tremendous unknowns and is impacting businesses and our communities on a number of different levels.
While we always recommend that all garbage, whether contained in your cart or container or as an extra unit outside of your container, be securely bagged to ensure efficient service and to help keep your immediate neighborhood clean and free of debris; during this crisis this is of utmost importance. Bagging loose garbage helps ensure items do not litter the surrounding area when your garbage driver is servicing your cart or container, but more importantly, it will limit exposure to our employees.
Effective immediately, garbage drivers will be instructed to not service any loose (not bagged) or unsecured garbage items outside of your cart or container. This does not pertain to recycle and yard waste at this time.
Further we are requesting that all garbage items inside your residential or commercial container be fully contained in properly sealed bags. This is a precaution during the COVID-19 crisis and we ask for your assistance to help keep our employees and community members safe.
If you have any questions regarding service, please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org (click here) or call 253-414-0345 to speak with a customer service representative. Please keep in mind that hold times may be longer than normal during this time.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation and will continue to provide the best service possible during these trying times.

INCLEMENT WEATHER ALERT - HOW TO "DOUBLE UP"
Inclement Weather Alert – How to "Double Up"
If any service area is faced with inclement weather, we will do our best to safely provide service. However, our drivers may start routes later than normal to allow the weather to ease and road conditions to improve. If our drivers cannot safely operate our fleet, service may be canceled in some areas or in extreme cases, all areas.
Collection of material that has been missed due to inclement weather and unsafe road conditions will be collected on the next scheduled pick up day at no additional charge. Garbage will be collected the following week and recycle or yard waste will be collected two weeks from date of the missed pick up, weather permitting.
If your garbage is missed due to inclement weather, please place out the equivalent of one week's service in 32-gallon bags next to your garbage cart on the next scheduled collection day.
If your recycle is missed missed due to inclement weather, please place out the equivalent of your bi-weekly service in a larger cardboard box next to your recycle cart on the next scheduled collection day.
If your yard waste is missed missed due to inclement weather, please place out the equivalent of your bi-weekly service in biodegradable bags next to your yard waste cart on the next scheduled collection day.
