Salisbury Trash Staggered

SALISBURY, MD - The City of Salisbury has announced its trash collection routes have been staggered due to maintenance issues with their trucks.

According to the City, the issues have caused delays in some routes with trash being collected the day or even two days after scheduled pick up times. 

The City reportedly purchased three new trucks since 2022, but ongoing supply chain issues have delayed their delivery to Salisbury. With a reduced fleet, the City says pickup will continue to take longer than usual, especially if any more of their trucks face maintenance issues. 

The City of Salisbury has made the following requests in light of the truck issues:

-If your trash is not collected at the usual date and time, please leave it out for our crew to collect when they can.

-Residents are encouraged to keep an eye on updates from the Department of Field Operations through our official communication channels, including our website and social media, for the latest information on trash collection.

-Residents are encouraged to reach out to the City/the Department of Field Operations at 410-548-3177 if their trash has not been picked up in a timely manner.

“We understand the inconvenience this may cause, especially during the holiday season and we appreciate your patience and cooperation during this period of temporary adjustment,” a City Spokesperson said in a statement.
