Freezing temps impact service to Mid Michigan Waste Authority communities

 SAGINAW, MI  –  Due to the expected sub-zero temperatures, solid waste collection services will be canceled in seven mid-Michigan communities on Wednesday, January 30.

Mid Michigan Waste Authority trash and recycling collection services, operated by Waste Management, will NOT be running in Bridgeport Twp, Chapin Twp, City of Frankenmuth, Frankenmuth Twp, City of Saginaw, Spaulding Twp, and Tittabawassee Twp. Recycling trucks from the City of Saginaw will also not be collecting on Wednesday.

Residents in those communities should hold their materials until their next regular service day. Do not place trash or recycling to the curb, as collection trucks will not return until next week.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has declared a state of emergency in Michigan as the state braces for extreme weather conditions and wind chills as low as negative 50 degrees.

While it is currently anticipated that collection services will be provided on Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1, the weather is being closely monitored to ensure that collection workers and communities stay safe. Residents in communities serviced on those days should refer to MMWA’s Facebook page and website, www.recyclemotion.org, for the most current announcements regarding inclement weather impacts.

Mid Michigan Waste Authority is a government entity providing comprehensive residential solid waste services to approximately 69,000 households in 34 communities across the Saginaw Valley area.
