Waste Management announces weather related service delays

February 20, 2018

All residential and commercial collection routes of Waste Management of Kansas City, which includes Johnson County, will experience service delays as weather and road conditions deteriorate.

“With the current poor road conditions due to freezing rain, our primary concern is for the safety of our drivers and the public,” said Paul Howe, senior manager of community relations manager for Waste Management. “As a result, we are pulling collection vehicles off the road at this time.”

All residential customers will experience a one-day delay throughout the remainder of the week. Customers with normal collection on Tuesday, will be serviced Wednesday.

There will be one-day trash and recycle service delay throughout the remainder of the week.

Services provided from the Louisburg operation are on schedule, although routes are proceeding slowly.

“We appreciate the understanding and patience of our customers,” said Howe.
