Fayetteville officials have suspended trash and recycling pickup for Wednesday, Jan. 25 after a winter storm brought heavy snowfall Tuesday that is expected to continue into Wednesday morning.
Many area roads are slick, which has created safety and access concerns for heavy trucks getting into tight spaces and traversing hills, according to Peter Nierengarten, the city’s environmental director.
Residential collections will resume when road conditions allow for safe collections, Nierengarten said, and customers who have already placed bins and carts on the curb can leave them there until they are picked up.
Customers who are impacted can place extra bags next to their bins without any additional charges on their accounts, Nierengarten said.
Recycling drop-off centers
Residents who don’t want 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. Those facilities are located at:
- Happy Hollow Recycling Drop-Off – 1420 S. Happy Hollow Road
- Marion Orton Recycling Drop-Off – 735 W. North Street
Commercial routes are also suspended and will resume when roads conditions allow for safe collections. If weather conditions improve, commercial routes that were cancelled may be collected on Thursday or Friday.
