Jackson County Names Waste Management as New Service Provider

 

From:  News Release   6/13/18   GCN

 

The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has named Waste Management as the County’s new solid waste service provider for residents in the unincorporated areas. Waste Management will begin servicing routes on July 1, 2018. There will be no changes to residents’ service days and they will pick up Wednesday routes on July 4.

 

Throughout the month, Waste Management and Waste Pro, the current provider, will be working together to ensure a smooth transition while new carts are distributed and old carts are collected. However, there are ways residents can assist:

 

If you have not received the new Waste Management carts

 

  • Continue using your current Waste Pro/Delta Sanitation carts until Waste Management carts are delivered

After you receive the new Waste Management carts

 

  • Begin using the Waste Management carts (Waste Pro will service them until their contract ends on June 30)
  • Stop using Waste Pro/Delta Sanitation carts
  • Leave Waste Pro/Delta Sanitation carts at the curb upside down until they are retrieved

Important Dates:

  • June 30, 2018 – All new Waste Management garbage and recycling carts should be delivered to residents in the unincorporated areas of Jackson County. If you have not received them, please call 228-831-8900.
  • July 1, 2018 – Waste Management officially begins its service. There will be no changes to residents’ service days.
  • July 6, 2018 – Stop using Waste Pro/Delta Sanitation carts. Waste Management will only service Waste Management carts and residents’ personal cans/carts after this date.
  • July 31, 2018 – All Waste Pro/Delta Sanitation carts should be collected. If yours have NOT been collected, please call 228-818-5393.
