The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:
Waste Management resumed collection of containers from previous customers who they no longer served on September 7, 2022, and will continue through Wednesday, September 14, 2022. Residents of County Solid Waste Collection Area No. 2 (which includes unincorporated areas of Ukiah, Redwood Valley, Potter Valley, Hopland, Yorkville, Fort Bragg, Mendocino, Little River, Albion, Comptche and surrounding areas), who were previously served by Waste Management but are now served by Redwood Waste Solutions, may place their old Waste Management containers out for collection according to the following schedule: Inland areas will be collected between September 7th and September 11th. Coastal areas will be collected between September 10th and September 14th. Please leave your containers out for collection during those days.
During this time, please do not drop off containers at Waste Management locations. The best way to ensure pickup of the containers is to place them in a visible and accessible location near the road or previous service location. Please do not impede traffic with containers or leave them on private property; Waste Management and their contractor will not be able to enter private property to collect containers. Residents may call the Department of Transportation this week at (707) 463-4363 to report locations of uncollected containers to ensure they are not missed. Also, if collection of your containers will require special access, please call to discuss arrangements for access.
This news release only applies to select areas or addresses where Waste Management containers remain uncollected. Most containers were already collected during July and August.
