From the Desk of Vice Chairman Pete Rios

San Manuel residents who subscribe to Waste Management for their trash removal services received a letter in early September from the company stating that they will begin curb service immediately. Waste Management will no longer be picking up trash from the alley ways.

I understand their reasons for making the change, but this is not good news to those who have physical problems moving a full trash can from the house to the curb.
Many of you contacted my office seeing if there is anything that can be done. My office has worked in conjunction with Pinal County Public Works and Waste Management to devise a solution for this issue.

The good news for those residents who are physically handicapped and cannot move the bins is that Waste Management has a backdoor service that picks up trash for those who cannot move the bins.

To schedule this handicapped service through Waste Management, please call 520-744-2600. They will send you a form to fill out so this service can begin as soon as possible.
My thanks to those who contacted my office to alert us to this issue. I hope this alternative service works for the physical handicapped.

Sincerely,

Pete Rios, Vice-Chairman
District 1
