As a result of closely monitoring fire/weather/evacuation routes, we may choose to postpone a scheduled container swap service if the environment is not deemed safe. This may include a danger present at the site itself, or to reduce the amount of traffic congestion in a designated evacuation area.
As these areas begin to recover and fire remediation processes begin, we’d like to remind all of our Drop Off Sites that we are unable to accept any post-consumer carpet material that has experienced fire damage including smoke contamination. This material should be sent to landfill and not included in CARE collection units. Read more.
