Waste Management collection delays continue on inclement weather

HOUSTON, January 19, 2018 (PCW) -- The aftermath of this week's winter storms continues to delay collection of trash and recyclables by the nation's largest operator of MRFs (material recovery facilities).

Waste Management on Friday reported collection delays in 11 states. In Georgia, delays remained in 20 counties. In other states, one-day delays seen all week were expected to end by Jan 20. Hazardous road conditions in rural parts of West Virginia kept collection suspended.

Plastic scrap reclaimers depend on WM, other MRF operators and scrap brokers for feedstock, including scrap bales, to produce recycled flake, pellet, repro, regrind and post-consumer resin of various polymers.

Buyers and sellers of scrap and recycled polymers this week reported extra trucking charges in some locations east of the Rockies of $400-$800/truckload due to truck shortages resulting from weather delays.

The other states where WM reported delays this week are: Massachusetts; Mississippi; North Carolina; New Hampshire; New Jersey; New York; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; Wisconsin.

Disruptive winter weather may continue this weekend. Heavy snow and strong winds may lead to blizzard conditions in parts of the Plains and Midwest by Sunday, according to The Weather Channel. -- Xavier A Cronin
