[ARCHIVED] Trash collection for Show Low's residential customers not affected by Labor Day holiday


SHOW LOW, Ariz. (August 28, 2018) – Waste Management’s service schedule for the City of Show Low’s residential customers remains unchanged despite next Monday’s Labor Day holiday. Residents are asked to place polycarts at curbside according to the usual schedule. Carts should be positioned four feet from any other objects, including fences, mailboxes, parked vehicles and other carts, so that it can be serviced safely.

Safety is critical to Waste Management every day of the year. The holiday is a good time to remind children to give trucks plenty of space to operate. Encourage kids to watch safely from a distance and help them understand what it means to stay 15 feet from a truck. Remind children never to try to touch a working trash truck, even if it is stopped. They should never try to add something to a cart while it is being serviced. If a ball (or a pet) disappears under the truck, they should not chase it. Get the driver’s attention and wait until the driver indicates it is safe to approach the truck.

Anyone hosting an outdoor celebration over the weekend is asked to designate a separate container to gather plastic bottles and cans for recycling. Place it near the trash but clearly label as recycling only (“Recycle empty plastic bottles and cans”). Keep food, liquids, plastic bags, glass bottles and trash out of the recycling.


As a reminder, excess trash collection is the following week from Monday, Sept. 10, through Thursday, Sept. 13.

The City of Show Low and Waste Management thanks everyone for helping to keep our community safe, clean and green! For more information, call (928) 532-4000.
