The Streets Department will resume all of its outdoor operations on Friday, June 9, announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams. The operations were suspended at noon on Thursday, June 8 in response to the City’s unhealthy air quality alert.
Crews will be working through Saturday to pick up any delayed trash and recycling collections. On Friday, trash and recycling materials not collected from Thursday’s sanitation routes will be picked up. Crews will also begin picking up materials regularly collected on Friday’s sanitation routes. The completion of Friday’s routes will take place on Saturday. Other services that will resume include paving, traffic, street lighting and street repairs.
Suspension of outdoor services was done out of an abundance of caution for employees sensitive to the air pollution. The Streets Department thanks residents for their patience and cooperation as we work through this emergency. The health and safety of our employees are our priority as well as providing our core services safely and efficiently to residents.
