Trash and recycling collections suspended due to weather

If your trash and recycling is still sitting unemptied when you get home this week, don’t get too bent out of shape.

The City of Fayetteville has suspended all solid waste, recycling and yard waste collections until road conditions improve, according to a news release issued this morning.

“The schedule for residential and commercial waste and recycling collections for the rest of the week is dependant upon future weather conditions,” said Brian Pugh, Fayetteville Waste Reduction Coordinator.

Residents are asked to put their trash carts, recycling bins and yard waste out for collection by 6 a.m. on their normal collection day and leave them out until they are picked up, even if that means leaving the carts and bins out several days until city crews can get to them.

Pugh also noted that the Solid Waste and Recycling offices and Transfer Station will be closed today (Monday, Jan. 4) due to the weather and will reopen when operations can be completed.

Oh, and don’t forget that you still have until Jan. 14 to treecyle that Christmas tree.
