Waste Industries service delayed due to weather

by Celia Shortt

Waste Industries will remain closed on Thursday, Jan. 30, due to the severe weather in Coweta County and the Atlanta area.

“Safety is our first priority—both for our own employees as well as for the communities we service,” said Byron Hurtado General Manager of Waste Industries in Atlanta, GA. “It is simply not safe for our trucks to traverse neighborhoods and businesses under the current conditions.” Waste Industries is hoping to resume normal operations on Friday, Jan. 31, pending their ability to operate safely in the weather conditions. Weather permitting, they will resume their normal service schedule on Friday, servicing Friday’s normally scheduled routes.

“Customers with missed services from Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will be fully serviced on their normally scheduled day next week (February 4th, 5th, and 6th),” said Hurtado. “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.”
