Staff shortages at Waste Management have caused disruptions and inconsistent recycling collection. Changing to every other week recycling collection is intended to fix this problem.
With this change, Waste Management will have more trucks available to complete garbage and yardwaste collection on schedule.
This every other week recycling schedule was already planned for in the new collection contract that will begin late this year. FCC Environmental will be distributing carts for garbage/yardwaste and recycling to all households this fall.
