Due to ongoing driver shortages caused by COVID-19, Waste Management is still collecting residential curbside recycling carts that were not serviced last week. In addition, less than 10% of residential curbside recycling carts scheduled for Monday were not collected. These combined issues are impacting this week’s recycling collection services. Delays due to COVID-19 cases may continue.
Increasing COVID-19 cases has caused a driver shortage at Waste Management. As a result, there will be no CURBSIDE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING collection this week. Please do not place any recycling carts at the curb for collection and remove any recycling carts already at the curb. Normal collection service will resume on Monday, January 10, 2022, with collection on your regularly scheduled service day. For next week only, excess recyclables that do not fit in your cart can be bagged and placed at the curb next to your cart.
UPDATE: Due to staff shortages caused by COVID-19, there are some Christmas tree pickup delays the week of January 3. Residents should leave their tree out if it doesn’t get picked up on their regular trash day and it will be picked up by Saturday, January 8.
In 2015, the City of Santa Ana’s Safe Mobility Santa Ana (SMSA) program identified Flower Street from Civic Center Drive to Warner Avenue as one of the corridors with safety enhancement needs. SMSA program proposed the installation of bicycle lanes along with the traffic signal upgrades to a protected left turn phasing at the intersections of Flower Street at McFadden Avenue and at Edinger Avenue.
