As residential trash volumes increase, it is likely this will continue as people are sheltering in place, working from home and schools are closed. Because of this increase in volume, Waste Management is asking residents in Copiah, Hinds, Madison and Rankin Counties to refrain from or limit the amount of non-essential waste they are placing curbside. These items will continue to be collected, however there may be a delay in doing so.
Non-essential waste includes bulk and yard waste materials, such as furniture, carpeting, mattresses, appliances, grass clippings and the like.
Rest assured, regular curbside collection of household waste will continue as normally scheduled. Please set containers at the curb on your regular collection day, Waste Management says.
