City of PSL working with Waste Pro to remedy missed weekend pickups
PORT ST. LUCIE – The City of Port St. Lucie and Waste Pro, its contracted waste hauler, apologize for any inconvenience to residents for missed routes on Saturday and, together, are working on a plan to ensure the uncollected waste is picked up as soon as possible.
Due to the large volume of waste put curbside following Hurricane Dorian preparations and personnel emergencies caused by the extreme heat, the City’s contracted waste hauler, Waste Pro, was not able to service approximately 4,500 Port St. Lucie customers on Saturday. With services suspended Monday through Wednesday last week, Waste Pro essentially is collecting double their normal trash volumes this week.
Waste Pro reports they are doubling efforts to get back on schedule and have told City officials they plan to be caught up with routes from Saturday and Monday by the end of today (Monday). Affected customers are asked to please do the following:
- For those who were not able to put waste out today and were missed on Saturday, please put your waste out on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
- If your collection day is today, Monday, please be patient as your collection may be delayed due to the missed routes on Saturday. Please keep your waste out curbside, even if it is past your regular pickup time, up until 9 p.m. If your waste is not picked up today, please put it out by 7 a.m. Tuesday.
- Expect delays with the collection of yard waste. Waste Pro workers dedicated to yard waste pick up are being utilized for regular collection today.
