FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas (KNWA/KFTA) — Fayetteville’s recycling and waste collection services are suspended on Jan. 25 due to road conditions caused by inclement weather.
According to a city press release, many of the roads in the area are slippery, creating safety and access problems for heavy trucks that enter hard-to-reach areas and drive uphill.
City authorities report that all environments, routes for the processing of residential buildings, garbage and garbage removal from the yard are suspended.
Residential collections will resume when road conditions allow it to be done safely, according to the city. No extra baggage fee will be charged to customers staying on Wednesday during the next collection day.
Residents who don’t want to wait for recycling services to resume can have access to two waste collection points that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the report says. The city says the transfer station at S. Happy Hollow Road is temporarily closed for repairs.
Commercial routes have been suspended on January 25 and will resume when road conditions allow for a safe collection, city officials said. If the weather improves, the city says it’s possible that missed commercial routes will be collected on January 26 or 27, with priority being given to critical facilities.
