FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 13, 2022
Normal route schedules are currently restored, and impacted residents will receive recycling collection on their next scheduled service date.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Due to resource capacity issues, our service contractor for Trash/Recycling will be unable to provide make-up recycling collection for those impacted by the suspension in service that occurred the week of January 3rd. Normal route schedules are currently restored, and impacted residents will receive recycling collection on their next scheduled service date. We appreciate and apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
As an alternative, impacted residents may utilize the McIntire Recycling Center, located at 611 McIntire Rd, to drop off their recyclable materials. More information can be found here: https://www.rivanna.org/mcintire-recycling-center/. If you are unable to utilize the drop-off location, residents may place the additional overflow items that will not fit in their recycling bins, in a box or other container next to your bin for pickup on your next scheduled service day. In these extenuating circumstances, residents may opt to place overflow recyclable materials out for collection on their scheduled trash day.
As we look ahead to the possibility of additional weather impacts for the coming weekend, we acknowledge the possibility that additional service disruptions may occur. Please check in with the City's website and social media accounts to receive service updates as they become available:
