Driver shortages delay recycling pickup in Santa Ana

Temporary Residential Curbside Recycling Cart Collection Delay

Santa Ana, Calif.- Due to ongoing driver shortages caused by COVID-19, Waste Management is still collecting residential curbside recycling carts that were not serviced last week.

In addition, less than 10% of residential curbside recycling carts scheduled for Monday were not collected. These combined issues are impacting this week's recycling collection services. Delays due to COVID-19 cases may continue.

What to expect

Any residential recycling carts not collected on your normal service day will be serviced during this week by end of day Saturday. Continue to place your carts at the curb on your normal service day. For those whose carts were not collected last week, excess recyclables that do not fit in your cart can be bagged and placed at the curb next to your cart.

Please note this affects CURBSIDE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING CART COLLECTION ONLY (gray carts). Trash (burgundy carts) and green waste (green carts) to be collected as regularly scheduled.

Christmas tree curbside collection continues but may also be delayed. Please leave your Christmas tree at the curb for collection.

Please contact Waste Management Customer Service Center at 714-558-7761 or visit support.wm.com to access the virtual assistant and be connected with a live customer agent.
