Oregon Service Alerts

Waste Management is committed to providing reliable collection service. We are also committed to the safety of our drivers and customers.

Weather conditions may delay collection times. Please leave containers out until 5:00 PM.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we manage weather-related challenges.

There are no weather related service interruptions 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:

Tips for Setting out Extra Materials After a Weather Delay

Extra garbage

Place next to garbage container in securely tied plastic bags labeled "Garbage" or 32-gallon lidded can labeled "Garbage"

Extra recycling

Place next to the recycling cart in any of the following:

  • Plastic recycling bins
  • Cardboard boxes (2'x2'x2' limit) labeled "Recycling"
    Please, no recycling in plastic bags
Extra yard debris (No food scraps or plastic)

Place next to yard debris cart in any of the following:

  • Heavy brown paper yard bags (available at hardware stores)
  • 32-gallon cans with handles & lids labeled "Yard Waste"
  • Bundles tied with natural twine (4'x2' limit)
When will collection resume?

Recovering from a storm can take more than just waiting for the streets to clear.  When a storm hits different communities over a couple of days, we respond by putting every driver and every truck on the road.  Even so, we will be operating in "recovery mode" for several days as we work to catch up.  Thank you for your patience.

Commercial and Multi-family Weather-Delayed Collection:

Waste Management will provide service as soon as conditions allow. Priority service to locations such as hospitals and restaurants, where public health is a high priority.
