Post-storm Commercial, Residential Collection Resumes In New Jersey

Following discussions with local officials, Waste Management has determined it is safe to resume collection in most areas of New Jersey, as well as Delaware and Eastern Pennsylvania.

With the resumption of most services on Oct. 31, WM expects most collection routes to be completed by Saturday and back on their regular schedule on Monday. Service in some communities has not resumed at the request of local government and emergency response officials. Up-to-date service information is available to WM customers through the company’s Hurricane Information banner on

“As part of our storm management procedures, Waste Management conducted post-storm observations and discussed the situation with local officials,” said Tara Hemmer, area vice president for Waste Management’s Greater Mid-Atlantic area.

“After this consultation, we deemed it is safe to resume our collection and disposal operations. At the same time, we are expanding our response efforts to address additional critical needs arising from Sandy’s impact.”

Large volumes of household garbage resulting from this storm must be disposed of safely and efficiently. Residents need to be aware of the distinction between the household garbage that Waste Management will collect and storm-related debris, which may be collected by other service providers.

“Household waste should be bagged and placed at the curb for regular pickup,” said Jerry Giannini, area director of operations. “Storm debris, including refrigerators and household appliances, tree limbs, carpet and carpet padding, and other materials destroyed by the storm should be piled separately for easy identification and collection by cleanup contractors.”

Rapid storm recovery actions undertaken by Waste Management includes activation of Waste Management’s “Green Team” to mobilize people, fleet and equipment in targeted locations most in need of critical disposal services. More than 30 skilled employees from around the country have been deployed to assist with the response in the surrounding communities.
