WM shares Information for Gettysburg residents

Gettysburg Borough received this information from the new waste and recycling hauler, Waste Management:

As of April 1, 2022, WM is the official waste and recycling hauler for Gettysburg Borough. In March, residents should have received a welcome letter with information about their service.


WM will continue to provide service to residents on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning April 4. Residents should follow the same schedule they had with the Borough’s previous hauler.

Trash and recycling containers are available for rent at a rental fee of $12 per container per quarter.

Containers can be picked up at the Borough’s Public Works yard, located at 457 East Middle Street, or residents can request container delivery. Container delivery will begin on the morning of April 2 and will be completed with a pick-up truck to avoid noise disruptions. To request a container, residents should contact WM at 800-593-9529 or visit www.wm.com to talk with a live representative.

“Our local hauling team in Greencastle is excited to begin providing service to Gettysburg Borough,” said Pat Heraty, Sr. district manager at Greencastle Hauling. “We know switching service providers can come with unintended challenges and apologize for any frustrations. Our team is ready to begin service on April 4 and look forward to a wonderful partnership with the Borough.”

WM was provided a list of customers from the Borough’s former waste hauler, and residents on this list do not need to sign up for a new account with WM. If a resident needs to contact WM customer service and does not have their account number handy, they can provide their name and address.

WM offers residents an opportunity to sign up for a My WM account online. Registering online is not mandatory but does provide some benefits. With a My WM account, residents can set up online bill pay or automatic payments, get up to date service information, and register to receive text, phone or email service alerts.

If trash haulers are to be paid for their service, then bins or containers for their use should be provided. While the rental is small, there should be NO rental at all. How many times has WM been sued?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
