The city of Hudson recently spoke with all trash haulers that service the city to clarify each company’s service offerings and service changes during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Here is what each sanitation collection company is doing in terms of trash and recycling pick up:
1. AA Sanitation: No changes to regular trash and recycling pick up. Both trash and recycling must be in a cart or bin. They would like customers to keep trash and recycling to a minimum. No excess trash bags or recycling bags will be picked up. Changes are in effect and will continue until the government lifts current restrictions.
2. Kimble Companies: All trash and recycling must be put in waste carts leaving no materials or bags on the ground to be loaded by hand. If a customer’s service does not include a waste cart, they should limit their trash to a maximum of three 30-gallon sealed bags. There is a temporary suspension on yard waste or bulk item pickups. Kimble will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will continue developing plans for continued response to the public health emergency.
3. Republic Services: All trash and recycling must be in the Republic Services issued carts/containers. No extra trash or recycling items or bags outside of the approved containers will be taken. Customers can co-mingle materials as long as everything is in the carts issued.
4. Waste Management: Trash and recycling are still being picked up in carts only. No extra bags or items. As of March 25, all yard waste and bulk item pickups have been suspended until further notice.
Here are more details on the companies’ bulk item and yard waste pickup:
1. AA Sanitation: No automatic bulk items pickups. All customers must call in to get bulk item(s) removed. Only yard waste bags that can be picked up with one hand will be taken. No large piles of yard waste or bags of grass clippings will be taken. There will be no discounts/credits on customer bills.
2. Kimble Companies: There is a temporary hold on yard waste and on bulk items that require hand loading. Also, no yard waste at the curb in excess of what fits in the Kimble waste cart, or in the three 30-gallon solid waste sealed bags for customers without waste carts. Customers should utilize composting or hold material until emergency orders have been lifted. No discounts or credits will be issued since it is Kimble’s intention to eventually pick up the bulk items and yard waste after a return to regular services.
3. Republic Services: No yard waste or bulk pickup until further notice. No announced rebates or credits have been released.
4. Waste Management: No bulk items or yard waste will be picked up until further notice. NOTE: Waste Management does not provide free yard waste or bulk item pickups in Hudson. They have not indicated any rebates and or credits for Hudson customers.
Here is how each company is handling curbside residential recycling pickup:
1. AA Sanitation – Still picking up curbside recycling and it is being taken to a transfer station for sorting.
2. Kimble Companies – Still picking up curbside recycling in the carts and it is being taken to their Twinsburg Material Recovery Facility to be sorted.
3. Republic Services – All collected materials are being taken to landfills at this time. Republic advises its customers to hold on to recycling and bulk items as best they can until service returns to normal.
4. Waste Management – Still picking up recyclables. All non-contaminated recyclables are being processed at this time.
For more information, residents are advised to call their waste hauler directly.
