Trash collection delays expected through January

Press release from City of Gainesville

Due to pandemic-related workforce shortages, Gainesville neighbors may experience residential solid waste collection delays through January and possibly into February.

The City’s contracted waste hauler, WCA/GFL Environmental, has been working to provide regular services levels while facing workforce shortages across the board, from collection drivers to mechanics. Service impacted may include residential garbage, recycling, yard waste, bulk waste, and other collection services performed by the City’s contracted waste hauler. Garbage collection services are prioritized for public health reasons. Residents may report missed collection by calling 352-334-2330 or online at cityofgainesville.org/MissedMyTrash

The City is working closely with WCA/GFL Environmental to monitor any irregularities or delays in collections. The City is committed to delivering best-in-class services to all neighbors and appreciates their patience and understanding during these challenging times.

  • If the city don’t pick up my trash,
    Than I need to get a credit on my utility bill…is this
    an associated scam to disperse those American
    Rescue Funds that need to be Covid related and
    Continue the Covid fear campaign to rake in that free federal Brandon money? It’s almost 2 years with the mask and the jab and we got lunatic brainwashed hypochondriacs wearing masks, we got communists wearing masks, we got social justice types wearing masks,
    And we got criminals wearing hoodies and masks…
    Some people need to wear the masks to cover up
    Their ugly…the criminals wearing the hoodies and
    the masks are such good citizens to be wearing
    The masks so as not to spread the Covid…

    • The printing of all that free money and paying people
      Not to work is making your dollar worth less… notice how
      expensive things are at the grocery store?
      Have you noticed how expensive building materials are?

      • When the price of gas is higher, it costs more to transport everything, and there is a domino/exponential effect that makes everything cost more and more. If gas was still $2.10/gallon, things would be a LOT different.
