FAYETTEVILLE — Thursday’s (Feb. 3) collection of residential trash and recycling is suspended this week due to the winter storm that hit the area Wednesday night. City offices are also closed.

Many area roads are slick, creating safety and access concerns for heavy trucks, according to a news release.

Residential collections will resume next week and be picked up on a normal schedule. Thursday customers will not be charged for extra bags that don’t fit into their bins next week. Extra bags should be placed on the ground next to trash containers.

Anyone who doesn’t want to wait for recycling services to resume can use either of the city’s two 24-hour recycling drop-off centers, located at 1420 S. Happy Hollow Road and 735 W. North Street.

Commercial service

Thursday commercial routes will resume when roads conditions allow for safe collections, according to the release. If weather conditions improve, it is possible that missed commercial routes will be collected on Friday or Saturday.

Other services

The city’s transfer station, household hazardous waste drop-off trailer, and compost facilities will all be closed on Thursday, and will reopen when conditions allow for safe operations.
