Trash Service Transition Causing Pick Up Delays in Saginaw

Saginaw’s new trash collection company is experiencing delays in picking up some resident’s trash.

The city started a new contract with the company Priotity Waste, transitioning from the MidMichigan Waste Authority, and it is the new company’s first week of service. MMWA officials say there is often a learning curve when a new company takes over, so some delays are to be expected.

The city has released an updated plan of action from Priority Waste, which will revisit missed areas of the city with additional trucks and expects to be on track with normal waste collection by Friday.
