Fayetteville officials have again suspended trash and recycling pickup because of poor road conditions.

Trash and recycling were called off on Monday, Feb. 15, marking the third time so far that a recent winter storm has caused delays in the services, which were also suspended on Wednesday and Thursday of last week.

Residential update:

All residential trash and recycling routes are suspended and will resume when road conditions improve. Officials said it is possible that Monday collections will need to be suspended for the entire week and will be collected the following week to allow for the collection of Wednesday and Thursday routes that were postponed last week. No extra bag charges will be assessed to Monday residential customers whose collection service was suspended this week. Residents who do not wish to wait for recycling services to resume can use either of the city’s two recycling drop-off facilities that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Commercial update:

Monday commercial routes are being limited to critical facilities and will resume normal operations when road conditions allow for safe collections.

Transfer station and offices:

The Transfer Station and Recycling and Trash Collections Offices will be closed to the public Monday, Feb. 15 and will reopen to the public when conditions allow for safe operations.

Recycling drop-off centers

Both of the city’s recycling drop-off centers are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

  • Happy Hollow Recycling Drop-Off – 1420 S. Happy Hollow Road
  • Marion Orton Recycling Drop-Off – 735 W. North Street
