waste mgmg update_600

Waste Management Update:

Even though Ecosouth ordered several hundred containers over and above expected residential customers, they still have a number of residents left with container deliveries pending. More containers are on order and currently being processed so it may be a week or two before all carts have been delivered. If you have called Ecosouth and have not yet received your container, your order is in process and there is no need to keep calling. If you have not yet called Ecosouth and are waiting on a container, please call them so they know who you are. All trash will be picked up by Ecosouth whether you have a container or not during this transitional period. Remember, if you are a business, you will need to call to set up service. Please visit the City of Leeds website for an interactive map that contains new garbage schedules at: https://www.leedsalabama.org/public-works/
