Trash & Recycling Update 2/15/21

The winter ice storm expected to begin Monday afternoon and continue into early morning Tuesday will cause a change in the start time for Waste Management to collect the trash and recycling in the city of Allentown.

Starting with the normal Monday Night collection zone through the Friday Night collection zone, February 15 through February 19, 2021, collections will begin at approximately 6 a.m. on Tuesday and will run during the day instead of overnight through the rest of the week.

To report any missed trash and recycling collections, please call the following business day.

For more information, please call the Bureau of Recycling and Solid Waste at 610-437-8729 or visit
