CLEVELAND — After the winter storm dumped heavy snow in most of Northeast Ohio, cities and trash collection companies have delayed trash pick-up due to inclement weather.

A spokesperson for Rumpke said service was canceled for the entire Cleveland area Friday.

“Our dedicated safety and operations teams monitored the storm by the minute, hopeful that we would be able to offer service this week,” said Paul Marker, region vice president for Rumpke. “Unfortunately, weather and road conditions have not allowed us to safely service some of our residential customers on Thursday or Friday of this week."

Residents who did not receive service Thursday or Friday should hold their material until the next scheduled service day. Service will resume on Monday.

Kimble said on its website that pick-ups will be delayed. The company issued the following service alert:

"With the safety of our employees in mind, we have made the decision to delay the majority of our commercial & residential routes. We ask that you keep your items at the curb until we are able to complete service. We appreciate your understanding."
