Collection Delays Due to Weather
The solid waste haulers in Auburn are committed to providing reliable collection for all customers. However, in the event that circumstances such as unsafe roads interfere with service schedules, we appreciate customer understanding and cooperation.
Any collection delays will be posted here for Waste Management customers and on the haulers website for Republic Services customers.
