Solid Waste Pickup Schedule

Due to Hurricane Isaias, the solid waste pickup for Tuesday will be delayed at least two hours. There may be additional service issues due to the possibility of flooded roads, down trees, etc. GFL will be dispatching every available driver to minimize service issues but if damage is severe, service may not be completed tomorrow. For any resident that is not serviced this week due to storm hazards, GFL is making plans to collect excess waste next week, on the regular service day. Thank you for your patience and feel free to contact us with questions or concerns.

Should you experience a power outage during the storm, you may report the outage and check the outage maps at the following links:

Be Prepared

Now is the best time to prepare for the storm to make sure you and your family are ready! Here are some helpful tips:

  • Discuss your hurricane emergency plan with your household and the latest Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance on Coronavirus (COVID-19) 
  • Have enough supplies for your household, including medication, disinfectant supplies, cloth face coverings, pet supplies, etc. 
  • If you or anyone in your household is an individual with a disability, identify if you may need additional help during an emergency.
  • Review your insurance policies and make sure personal documents (like ID) are up to date.
