ALTON/EDWARDSVILLE - The heavy snowfall, mixed with ice and sub-zero wind chills have made it almost impossible for waste providers in the region.
Bob Sanders, owner of Robert Sanders Waste, announced some changes in effect for Tuesday because of the inclement weather.
"We will not be picking up in any of our rural areas today," Sanders said "It is still too dangerous to have the trucks trying to maneuver around. We are going to pick up in town only in (Alton/Godfrey) where the trucks can safely get to. We understand the frustration of all of this, but can not control the weather and will not take unnecessary risks with employees and equipment.
"Our rural communities will have to wait until next week for pick up. We are sincerely sorry. Thank you."
Republic Services in Edwardsville posted a message to customers today that residential routes for Monday and Tuesday were suspended because of hazardous road conditions.

"We will reopen and resume routes as soon as it's safe to do so," the company said in an announcement.
