Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress.

Also a product of the Buckhead Creek Watershed Study, this project involves the addition of two culverts to the existing culvert on Coventry Road to allow for more conveyance capacity during storm flows, therefore reducing yard and surface flooding upstream. This project also incorporates a floodplain bench which will provide additional flow capacity as well as reduce erosion in the stream channel.

Construction began on this project in August 2017 and is expected to last six months.
