As Hurricane Dorian makes it’s way north, Coral Springs and Broward County Public Schools are resuming normal operations.
According to city spokesperson Lynne Martzell, on Waste Pro will be extending their hours of service to accommodate solid waste volume. On Wednesday, they will resume trash collection for residential areas normally serviced on that day.
In an effort to complete routes, Waste Pro will start collection earlier than normal. Residents should have their green cart out by 6 a.m. for collection on Wednesday. Recycling, bulk and yard waste will not resume for Coral Springs until Monday, September 9.
If residential trash collection is Wednesday, please have your green cart out by 6 a.m. This is kitchen garbage only. If you have overflow garbage bags (that do not fit inside your green cart) place them next to the green cart. A second garbage truck will make a pass-through to collect that waste.
Waste Pro will not collect recycling, bulk trash or yard waste until Monday, September 9.
Multi-family communities and businesses with front-loading compactors or dumpsters will have extended collection hours starting tomorrow to alleviate garbage overflow which will continue through Saturday, September 14. These communities and businesses can expect a trash collection service as early as 3 a.m. and as late as 8 p.m.
Waste Pro representatives are working directly with Public Works staff to communicate at the end of each collection day about communities that may not have been serviced. Communities which may be missed due to garbage volume can expect Waste Pro to return the next day for collection.
