Idaho Service Alerts

Waste Management is committed to providing reliable collection for all customers. However, in the event that circumstances such as unsafe roads interfere with service schedules, we appreciate customer understanding and cooperation as we manage weather-related challenges.

Weather conditions may cause collection times to vary. Please leave containers out until 5:00 PM.

If weather conditions postpone service, we will post schedule updates here.

If your area is not listed below as having a service interruption, and your material has not been collected by 5 PM on your service day, please report the missed collection here.

There are no service delays reported at this time.

Remove Snow

To keep containers accessible, please remove snow and extra material from around or on top of them. If your street is snowy or icy, please move your container to a more accessible location to avoid postponed collection.

Clear Storm Drains
to Prevent Street Flooding:

As snow melts, water run-off can result in flooding, which further impedes collection. Please clear storm drains of snow and debris to prevent flooding.

Standard Weather Policy:

Twice Regular Amount Accepted Next Regular Collection Day* in Most WM Service Areas

If weather conditions prevent collection of garbage or recycling, please remove the containers from the street.

  • Up to twice the regular amount of material will be accepted at no additional charge on the next regular collection day for each container* unless otherwise specified on this weatherboard or by special notification.

    Tips for Managing Extra Garbage & Recycling.

* Every Other Week Recycling & Yard Waste Collected Two (2) weeks after Missed Collection: If recycling or yard waste is regularly collected every other week, the uncollected material will be collected on the next regular collection day for that container (two weeks from the missed collection), unless residents are otherwise notified by telephone or on this site.

No credit is given for postponed collection due to weather conditions, but up to twice the regular amount is accepted at no extra charge.
