Your city trash and recycling pickup will be one day behind this week, Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced Sunday.
If your garbage is usually picked up on Monday, you should put your materials out Tuesday, and so on.
Severe weather that brought heavy rain and flooding is partly to blame, affecting the department’s ability to complete collections on time.
But there are other factors at work here, too: There has been increased refuse tonnage with more people at home during the pandemic, and also because of the July Fourth holiday weekend, according to department spokespeople. Some of last Thursday and Friday’s material still hasn’t been collected.
