Dear Valued Waste Management Customers,

Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) 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” work force and is focusing on the performance of essential services during this unprecedented emergency. 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, and so Waste Management’s employees dedicated to collecting and disposing of trash are in the field continuing to perform this critical function.

In order for Waste Management to maintain its focus on municipal solid waste collection and disposal, and due to the reduced number of employees in the field, effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020, Waste Management is temporarily suspending the performance of the following services, which are non-essential during this period of emergency:

• Bulk Collection – furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc.
• Spring and bulk clean-ups
• Yard Waste Collection – grass clippings, brush, tree limbs, etc.
Please Note:
• All trash/refuse must be bagged & sealed (and wherever possible) placed in containers. LOOSE ITEMS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
• All recyclable materials must be placed inside recycling bin (including cardboard). ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE OF BIN, WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.

• WM will enforce (bag and/or cart limits), as reflected in our current contract.

When the Declarations of Emergency and social distancing recommendations have been eased and Waste Management’s work force returns to pre-pandemic levels, these services will be restarted. Waste Management will provide notice when the service(s) will resume.
We have been a part of this community for many years and know that together we will be resilient. Thank you for your partnership during this critical time.

Sincerely,

Mike Christ
Public Sector Representative

POLICE DEPARTMENT
The Police Department will continue to be fully staffed. Officers will continue to respond when a person’s safety or property are in immediate danger. Non-emergency calls will be handled by phone as much as possible. It is requested that complaints and informational requests be made by phone as walk-ins are discouraged.

FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Fire Department is taking extra precautions to make sure First Responders are staying safe. Effective immediately, the firehouse will be staffed 24/7 with 2 firefighters and others on stand by if needed. They will be responding with limited members to keep exposure at a minimum. If a life threatening emergency occurs, be assured that a full company response will take place. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact them by phone at 412-741-4840 or email fire@cochranhose.org

This situation is constantly evolving and changing. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we adapt to these rapidly changing circumstances.
