Inclement Weather Information

City of Vancouver, in coordination with Clark County and Waste Connections, strive to keep disruptions to a minimum. If unsafe weather conditions persist, the City/County and garbage hauler will determine if a cancellation is necessary. Our first priority in determining if a cancellation is needed is the safety of our drivers and of our citizens.

One-Day Cancellation

In the case of a one day cancellation due to inclement weather, the City/County and service provider will determine whether follow-up collection will take place the next day or whether collections should be held and twice the amount be picked up on the next week's regular collection day. For example, if delayed a day and your collection is on Wednesday, your pickup could be moved to Thursday. Thursday collection moved to Friday and Friday collection will move to Saturday, weather permitting.

More Than One Day Cancellation

If more than one day of garbage service is canceled in a week, customers of the days canceled should expect to take their waste off the curb and set out double the amount of waste on the following week on your regularly scheduled collection day at no additional charge. Note: Holiday schedules may also impact changes in collection dates caused by inclement weather.

Be informed
