Commercial and residential trash, recycling and yard waste collection will not be affected by the holiday and will run their normal schedules before, during and after Independence Day.

The offices of the Solid Waste and Recycling department will be closed on July 4, but all collection routes will run as normal.

In other solid waste news, the city’s Compost Facility at 1708 S. Armstrong Ave. is open during normal operating hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays in July from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The site will also be opened Saturday, July 7 and Saturday, July 14 from 8 a.m. to noon. Residents of Fayetteville are allowed to drop off brush, leaves or grass during these hours but need to bring a recent water bill showing solid waste charges and proof of residency to drop off yard waste for free. Commercial landscapers and contractors are allowed to use the site for drop off purposes and normal fees apply.

Mulch will be made available during normal operating hours (see above) while supplies last. The fee for mulch is $10 per scoop (2.5 cubic yards) and is available to anyone.
