Intermountain Refuse Monthly - November 2016


 Intermountain Refuse Monthly for November 2016

November is bringing a lot of change this year, not just for Burney Disposal but for our entire nation. First, daylight savings time will end on Nov. 6, which means an extra hour of sleep for all of us. We’ll need the extra rest, too because one of the most controversial elections of all time will take place on Nov. 8. We urge you to vote! Even if you (like us) are frustrated by national politics, our local supervisor and other important ballot measures are worthy of your attention. We hope you will join the BDI team at the polls to make your voice heard!

November also brings Veterans Day. On Friday, Nov. 11, we have the opportunity to honor our veterans as well as those who currently serve our great country. Our office will not be closed on Veterans Day as it is so close to billing time, but we honor the service of the veterans on our staff as well as those in our community and around the world. Burney Disposal, Inc. thanks every brave man and woman who has served to protect our freedoms.

Of course, not too long after Veteran’s Day, we will all gather around the table to celebrate Thanksgiving. What a wonderful time to think of family and also turn our thoughts toward what we can do for others. There are many ways to volunteer and help out in our community for those who need it most around the holiday season. One opportunity is as simple as sharing a phone number with someone who may need a little extra help. The United Way of Northern California extends their 211 program to any and all people in the North State who need to find resources, not just around the holidays but all year long.

2-1-1 Shasta is an information and referral helpline that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The helpline is free, confidential and available in many languages. Callers will be connected to live specialists who will assist in finding information regarding food, clothing ,utility assistance, housing, shelter, job training and employment, parenting classes, healthcare, crisis hotlines, transportation, senior services, child care, drug and alcohol treatment, legal services, counseling, mental health, support groups and more. To access this resource, just dial 2-1-1 on any phone within Shasta County, call 855-211-7822 or visit online at

November also brings changes to our company! With a full list of excited participants, Burney Disposal plans to roll out services to to the Day Road area this month! Our drivers will make the drive to Day Road on Friday mornings to extend curbside pick up to our brand new customers. Welcome to the Burney Disposal, Inc. family, everyone!

Thank you to everyone who has put in work in person and on social media to rally the people of Day Road to make all of this possible. We look forward to serving you and your families. If you have any questions, concerns or considerations for us please call the office at 530-335-2723 and ask for Elizabeth. We are more than happy to talk you through any concerns and are genuinely interested in customer feedback as we take on this new project. November is a wonderful time for positive change, and we are very pleased with the opportunity to better serve our community!

If you live in the Fall River Mills area, you are probably celebrating the recent re-opening of the Cassel-Fall River Bridge. The bridge has reopened without weight limits, which allows us to better serve our curbside customers in the area as well as our Fall River Mills transfer station, which is located beyond the bridge on Cassel-Fall River Road. Burney Disposal, Inc. will reopen this facility from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each Saturday of each month beginning Nov. 5. Thank you to our customers in the Fall River Mills area for your flexibility as we navigate the continuing change resulting from the bridge issue. 

Congratulations to Chris Mundell of Burney, who won a free month of garbage service in our survey drawing last month. Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey. We will read all of your feedback and take it into consideration when planning recycling efforts and programs for our area. 

Lastly, we want to wish you and your families a blessed and happy start of the holiday season. It has been our pleasure to serve generations of customers in Northeastern Shasta County for the past 39 years. Thank you for your continued patronage and support.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Burney Disposal, Inc. family.
