York city trash collections for the remainder of the week will be delayed by one day, according to the city’s website.
All of Thursday’s collections will take place Friday, and Friday’s collections will be Saturday because of Thursday’s inclement weather, the website states.
York Mayor Kim Bracey declared a snow emergency Wednesday at 7 p.m. And the York Business Resource Panel scheduled for today was canceled, according to the city’s Department of Economic and Community Development.
York refuse customers are asked to be patient and make special efforts during winter weather to properly prepare all items placed for collection. Wind, rain, snow and ice present many additional challenges for collection crews, often resulting in sprains and similar injuries, frostbite and even worse, the city’s website states. Additionally, the website reminds customers that collections in inclement weather will take longer, with crews beginning work as early as 6 a.m. and may be collecting as late as 9 p.m.
