Garbage pickup day will change for some

MARYSVILLE — To help keep the cost of solid waste pickup as low as possible, the city of Marysville recently conducted a study of daily curbside residential pick-up routes to look for ways to increase efficiency.
The study revealed by modifying some routes the city could save on fuel costs; avoid adding unnecessary emissions in the air and help prevent future maintenance costs on the trucks by eliminating miles driven, says Terry Hawley, Operations Manager.
The new routes and pickup day will go in effect on July 1, 2009.
As a result, scheduled pickup days for some residents will change, Hawley says. Taped banner notices will be sealed on the lids of customers’ cans if their pickup day is going to change from their current scheduled day. Customers will be notified between June 15-26 on the collection day prior to the change.
Waste Management NW is working closely with the City to ensure that curbside recycling and yard waste pickup are on the same day as regular garbage to avoid residents from having to place cans out on different days.
The city is sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our customers. If the switch in days causes a can to be missed, city solid waste trucks will pick up the missed can at no extra charge.
