MASWU COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Response: McPherson Area Solid Waste Utility is following KDHE policy and best practice recommendations from industry experts regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. The health, safety, and well-being of our employees, customers, vendors, and visitors are of utmost importance. 

At this time, we are have made a few changes to our drop off procedures, but are otherwise under a normal schedule. Details are below. However, we would like to suggest that if you are in need of service, need to pay your bill or have general questions that you call our staff.  We are able to take payments over the phone, via ACH payments or by mail.  These adjustments are to protect those we employ and serve.  We also encourage you to limit your time at our sites, follow directions of the staff and keep social distancing protocols until further notice.  Also, as you have probably heard, please stay home if you have a fever, cough or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Any updates regarding changes to our services and operations will be shared on this website. We ask for your cooperation during this time of emergency and thank everyone for their commitment to keeping our community safe. Let’s take this opportunity to extend additional grace, kindness, and care for our friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors. Please stay safe and healthy.
