Crews will collect garbage, recyclables Saturday ahead of storm

Kenneth Cuffee of Gulfport puts new recycling bins out in Biloxi for Team Waste on Monday, Sept. 25, 2017. Delivery of the new cans was delayed first by Hurricane Harvey, because the cans are made in the Houston area, and now by Tropical Storm Nate.

Trash and debris collection will continue on Saturday in advance of Tropical Storm Nate, the Harrison County Utility Authority reported Friday.

For residents in Harrison County and the cities of Biloxi, D’Iberville, Long Beach and Pass Christian served by the Harrison County Utility Authority, the regular garbage and recycling pickup will continue on Saturday in the areas that still need service, the Utility Authority said.

Team Waste will collect garbage and recycling and Pelican Waste crews will be out picking up yard debris and rubbish Saturday before the storm hits.

No trucks will run on Sunday and residents are being told to secure their carts by early Saturday afternoon to avoid having them blown away.

Nate’s current track shows that service will be able to return as scheduled on Monday, according to the media notice. Should any roads be closed on Monday, collections will be on Tuesday morning.

Residents of Pass Christian and parts of Long Beach and Harrison County are reminded to put their garbage carts out late Sunday night or before 6 a.m. Monday.

Delivery of the new recycling carts, which was scheduled for Sunday, will be delayed a day or two due to the storm.
