Waste Industries to resume trash pickup on Monday

by Clay Neely - clay@newnan.com

After a suspended work day on Friday due to icy roads, Waste Industries will be resuming their normal routes starting Monday in Newnan as the city contractor and for private customers across Coweta County.

David Hunt, residential development manager for Waste Industries, noted that customers who missed their scheduled trash pickup this week should simply leave their excess waste in bags next to their existing containers.

“Safety is our first priority — both for our own employees as well as for the communities we service,” said Hunt. “It is simply wasn’t safe for our trucks to traverse neighborhoods and businesses during Friday’s conditions,” he said of Coweta’s roads and streets that still had icy patches Friday morning. “We are resuming our normal service schedule on Monday, servicing Friday’s normally scheduled routes. Customers that missed services from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and parts of Friday will be fully serviced on their normally scheduled day next week,” said Hunt.

“Waste Industries’ is aware that because these customers were missed due to weather this week they will have extra trash out at the curb on their upcoming service day. Waste Industries will fully service these customers, and apologizes for the inconveniences brought on by the unpredicted weather.”
