The Quincy and Chester Transfer Stations are now open on a limited schedule to help customers seeking to dispose of trash and recyclable material.
Both transfer stations will operate Wednesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a one-hour closure each day from noon to 1 p.m.
Customers seeking to self-haul trash and recycling are asked to remain patient as higher than normal use could result in longer than usual wait times.
Waste Management is also continuing curbside collections for customers living outside of mandatory evacuation zones, including those living in Quincy.
Customers are asked to place carts curbside on their regularly scheduled collection day and place any excess trash in bags next to their carts for collection. While operations have resumed, there could still be delays of up to one day for service. If your trash and recycling is not collected on your regular service day, it will be collected the next day.
Since service is continually changing based on the unpredictability of the Dixie Fire and surrounding air quality, the best way to learn about these constant changes is to ensure customer contact information is up to date.
WM customers are encouraged to update their communication preferences online at wm.com/mypreferences. Customers can choose to be contacted via text, phone or email.
WM service is impacted for a variety of reasons including areas being closed due to mandatory evacuations, extremely poor air quality and the unpredictable fire danger. Many of our drivers live in impacted neighborhoods and are also under mandatory evacuations.
