Solid Waste suspends service

Service for all Johnson City Solid Waste customers is suspended until road conditions improve. Collection crews have reported treacherous road conditions as a result of ice, requiring that services be put on hold.

“Our first priority is to the crews collecting solid waste,” said Solid Waste Manager Hal Crawford. “When their safety and the safety of other motorists is assured, we will resume service to the customer.”

Temperatures are expected to fall throughout the day on Tuesday and remain low throughout the remainder of the week. There is a possibility that Solid Waste services will not resume for several days. When they do, crews will have an increased workload and will work to restore service as efficiently and reliably as possible.
