Waste Management pick up times

I live in a building that is right on the alley. At least once a week, either recycling or garbage pick up seems to be coming at 4:00AM. It's very loud and always wakes up my husband and me. Are there any laws about timing of pick ups? I know they can't start construction in the city before 7:00AM. It's once a week and it's not a huge deal but I just wonder why it happens so early!

  • JPC

    4am? That's super early, I've never heard them that early. I wonder why so early...

  • Ellen north center/lincoln square

    They can't pick up before 7 am. Keep a log of dates and times and call streets and sanitation (your alderman's office can tell you the ward boss's name and number). S&S will ticket the driver. This used to happen to me, but after several calls it finally stopped. The driver will get the message that your alley will cause them to get a ticket.

  • Thank you! I will keep a log from now on. I thought it was really strange for them to pick up so early.
