Garbage Pickup Update

November 18, 2022

The Village of Depew has been in continuous contact with Casella in regard to Thursday’s missed pickup and today’s cancelled service due to the weather event. Unfortunately, there were mechanical issues yesterday which caused several streets to be missed which is never ideal and even more stressful when coming into a holiday week. Normally, in this situation, Casella would double up its pickup the following day and service the streets that had been missed due to the mechanical issue. Unfortunately, due to the storm, this is not an option. With the driving bans in place and with the Waste Management dump station being closed, they will suspend service in the Village until Monday.  The residents that were affected by yesterday’s mechanical issue and those whose service was cancelled today will be allowed to put double the trash out for their pickup next week. This is a one-time only exception that extra bags placed outside of the tote will be picked up. Please remember that service will be delayed for the Thanksgiving holiday, meaning your normal Thursday collection will be on Friday November 25th and those with a normal Friday collection day will be on Saturday November 26th of next week. We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented delay.
