The City of Macomb Public Works Department has announced that waste pick up in the city will happen one half hour earlier beginning Tuesday, June 13th. With temperatures on the rise and the heat index expected to make things feel even warmer than the actual temperature, the Public Works Department has made the decision to move up the waste collection time from 6 Am to 5:30 Am in order to help waste management employees get out of the heat quicker. Residents are encouraged to get their carts to the curb the night before in order to accomodate the earlier pick up time. The earlier pick up time will remain effect until further notice. Anyone with questions regarding the new 5:30 Am waste pick up time in Macomb can call Public Works at 309-833-2821.
