SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - If you're hoping to get rid of your garbage Wednesday, just hold on. Because of possible flooding and road hazards, residential trash collection all across South Mississippi is being delayed one day.
The only Waste Management crews on the road Wednesday will be for commercial and roll-off customers, although the pick-up times may be delayed.
Residential service will resume on Thursday, Sept. 6 with all service days moving back by one day. That means if your trash is normally picked up on Wednesday, you'll be serviced on Thursday. Thursday residential customers will be serviced on Friday and Friday residential customers will be serviced on Saturday, until all collection services are back on track and normal service resumes next Monday, Sept. 10.
