Service Advisory: Intermittent Collection Delays Due To Laborer Shortage

 Sanitation is experiencing a laborer shortage resulting in intermittent service delays for customers.  Sanitation has adjusted operations to prioritize on-time garbage collection for customers.  This means all available staff are assigned to garbage collection routes first.  Blue roll cart collection of recyclable materials may be delayed by 1-2 days in various areas of the city, on a rotating basis, over the next several weeks, until staffing levels stabilize. It is not necessary for customers to report missed recycling collection to 311 unless materials have not been collected after more than 48 hours.  Learn more about this issue and how the City is addressing it here.
