Inclement Weather and Holidays


During the winter months, there are times when weather conditions are such that garbage cannot be collected. Even when the roads appear safe, there are many secondary roads that are not passable. 

We consider the safety of our employees and the general public to be the primary consideration when evaluating whether to provide solid waste collection services during a potentially hazardous weather/storm event.  Services may be delayed or cancelled.

Announcements about service delays or cancellations are updated on the EWS website, social media, via the CodeRED system or Garland E-News. Subscribe to CodeRED and Garland E-News.
