Feb. 15 Inclement Weather Schedule for
Fayetteville’s Recycling and Trash Collection
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.– The City of Fayetteville’s Recycling and Trash Collection Division services are being suspended until further notice on Monday, Feb.15 because of weather conditions affecting area streets and roads. Snow and ice covering the streets causes issues with heavy trucks getting into tight spaces and traversing hills.
All Monday residential trash and recycling routes are suspended and will resume when road conditions improve to allow for safe collections. 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 have access to two recycling drop-off facilities open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
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.
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.
