Dear Municipal leaders,
We appreciate the trust you place in us and our people servicing your community. Like us, in the last several days, we are sure you have been focused on the health of your employees, community, families, and friends. At Waste Management of Iowa, Inc, (Waste Management) safety is a core company value and the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and community remains our highest priority. We are taking every precaution to ensure that our company is safely servicing your residents.
At present, Waste Management is maintaining a standard collection schedule for trash and recycle, and we are not experiencing any collection interruptions. If circumstances change that may impact our ability to provide services as scheduled, we will provide prompt updates to our customers and communities.
However, effective immediately the following changes are being implemented until further notice.
• Effective immediately, we are temporarily suspending the handling of incoming residential calls into our contact center, as we adopt social distancing, to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Our goal is to resume the residential call handling as soon as possible through a work from home program of our residential agents. In order to achieve this, the company has made technology investments of equipment to prepare our agents to work remotely.
• Bulky item collection including scheduled events or extra call in service for bulky items, such as large items outside the cart, is suspended until further notice.
As leaders in our highly regulated industry, we follow strict policies and procedures every day when managing solid waste, including medical waste, to protect our employees, our customers and the communities we serve. We will continue to follow all our protocols and perform our work with the utmost care.
Our teams are monitoring the latest information and continually evaluating recommendations as information becomes known or advisories are issued.
We appreciate your assistance and understanding during this unprecedented time. We will immediately communicate as further developments and information become available. Thank you for trusting Waste Management as your environmental solutions partner. We truly appreciate your business.

The 2020 Census is coming. The count is mandated by the Constitution to count everyone living in the U.S. and has happened every 10 years since 1790.
In March 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau will send every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1, 2020. The 2020 Census is easy, safe and important.
Census results help determine how billions in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year for services and programs, such as schools, clinics and roads.
Census results also determine how many seats Iowa will have in Congress and our community’s representation in the state Legislature.
How to respond?
The 2020 Census marks the first time people can respond online. You will also be able to respond by phone. If you do not respond online or by phone, you will eventually receive a paper questionnaire form in the mail. For households that do not self-respond, a census taker will follow up in person to have you complete the census.
Who do I count in my home?
The person completing the form should list all people living in the household as of April 1, 2020,
This includes everyone living and sleeping at your home most of the time, such as relatives and friends, people who are formally or informally renting from you.
Remember to count any children living with you, including foster children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, children of friends (even if they are temporarily living with you). Children who split time between homes are counted where they live April 1, 2020.
What happens to my responses?
When you respond to the census, your answers are protected by law. The Census Bureau keeps your individual responses strictly confidential and used only to produce aggregate statistics.
What if I have other questions?
Get more info: 2020Census.gov
To shape the future of your community, be counted.
