I want to give an update on trash collection in Big Sur.
Residential and Commercial Dumpsters
This past Friday, May 5 Waste Management sent the commercial truck to collect from residents and businesses. We collected 15 tons of material. WM is on an every other week pick up schedule for residents and businesses. The next pick up day will be Friday, May 19.
40 Yard Dumpsters
The 2-40 yard dumpsters are provided and serviced by Coastal Rolloff. Coastal Rolloff accesses the dumpsters from northbound Hwy 1 from San Luis Obispo. With the newest landslide occurring last week, Coastal was not able to empty the 40 yard Mill Creek dumpster on Friday, May 5. Coastal is only able to service 1-40 yard each Friday due to their driver availability.
The 40 yard dumpsters are located at Mill Creek and Vista Point. Both dumpsters are completely full. The dumpsters are getting abused in the sense that they are being overfilled, litter is left behind, and bulky items are being dropped into the containers. The dumpsters are strictly for the use of residential trash.
To address the full 40 yard dumpster issue, Waste Management will be taking an empty 25 yard covered dumpster on Wednesday, May 10 through Naci-Fergusson Rd and will be placed next to one of the existing 40 yard dumpsters, where there is room. We will do our best to service the 25 yard roll off container, until Coastal is able to empty the 40 yard dumpsters. Please let me know if you have questions.
Thank you for your continued patience,
