On Thursday, Mayor Stothert is going to hold a Press Conference announcing a major change to the way in which Deffenbaugh runs its routes. Starting January 5th, all routes are being resectored. In other words, about 75% of Deffenbaugh customers pick up day for garbage, recycling, and yard waste will change.
The plan to go to these new pick up days was made in cooperation with the City in 2012, and has nothing to do with the fact that Deffenbaugh is being purchased by Waste Management.
All customers will receive a post card in late December letting them know their new pick up day. There will also be issues of the Wasteline publication which tells them about the change. Finally, there will be a web site available that will allow the customer to enter there address then find out their new pick up day.
The webpage to look up the current and new day of collection is: http://newday.wasteline.org.
