(Neb)-SWANN Moving To Winter Once A Week Pickup Schedule  Listen

By: John Axtell Posted at: 01/02/2017 11:36 AM
CHADRON -  SWANN, the Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska, is closed today and when it resumes operations tomorrow it will be with winter trash pickup schedules in place. Executive Director Jack Nemeth says that means dumpsters will be emptied just once a week with customers able to call for a second pickup if needed.

       Nemeth says the winter schedule was adopted for a very simple reason: trash totals are much lower in the winter so the cost of a second pickup can be saved.

Nemeth says the cold winter weather also meets that garbage in dumpsters is often frozen, eliminating odor problems that occur in the summer.
