Waste Management of San Diego Residential Waste and Recycling Service Delayed by One Day

In observance of Memorial Day

SAN DIEGO, CA – May 10, 2012 – Waste Management of San Diego’s curbside residential trash and recycling pick-up schedule will be delayed by one day throughout the week of May 28, in observance of Memorial Day. This means customers in the following cities should place their bins out for pick-up one day later than usual, beginning Tuesday, May 29 through Saturday, June 2:

  • 4S Ranch
  • El Cajon
  • Santee
  • Communities in unincorporated San Diego County, including Lakeside, Spring Valley, Alpine and Jamul

“Residential customers who usually receive service on Monday will instead receive it Tuesday, and so on throughout the week, with Friday’s customers receiving service on Saturday,” said Carl Scherbaum, district manager. “We appreciate our customers’ cooperation with the holiday schedule so that our employees can observe Memorial Day.”

Business commercial trash and recycling services in these cities and all trash and recycling services in the City of San Diego will not be affected by the holiday – these services will remain on the regular Monday through Saturday schedule for the same week.

The local Waste Management office, buyback center and the customer service center will be closed on Monday, May 28, with normal operations resuming on Tuesday, May 29.

Customer service is available at 1-866-WM RECYCLE (1-866-967-3292).
