Recycling and Trash Schedule Suspended for Feb. 23 and 24
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The City of Fayetteville’s recycling and trash collection services are suspended for Wednesday, Feb. 23 and Thursday, Feb. 24 because of road conditions caused by inclement weather. Many area roads are slick, creating safety and access concerns for heavy trucks getting into tight spaces and traversing hills.
Wednesday Residential Service update:
All residential curbside recycling collections were completed today for Wednesday customers. A majority of residential trash collections also were completed before roads became too hazardous for collections to continue. Wednesday customers who did not receive trash collection service today will have extra bags collected at no cost during next week’s normally scheduled service.
All Thursday residential recycling and trash collection routes are being suspended. Residential collections will resume next week and be collected according to normal schedule. No extra bag charges will be assessed to Thursday residential customers. Residents who do not wish to wait for recycling services to resume have access to two recycling drop-off facilities open 24 hours a day, seven days a week: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/3043/Facilities
Commercial routes are being suspended and will resume when roads conditions allow for safe collections. If weather conditions improve, it is possible that missed commercial routes will be collected on Friday or Saturday.
The Transfer Station and the Household Hazardous Waste drop-off trailer at 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road and the Compost Facility at 1708 S. Armstrong Avenue will be closed to the public on Wednesday and Thursday. These locations will be reopened to the public when road and weather conditions allow for safe operations.
Please contact the Recycling and Trash Collection Division at 479-575-8398 with questions about collection services, or view information posted on the City’s website at https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/531/Recycling-Trash-Service.
