Ice keeps trash trucks off Wilmington roads another day
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Trash service has one again been canceled for Friday because of hazardous roads.
The City of Wilmington says while some roads in town are passable, most neighborhood streets remain very icy, making it difficult for the large trash trucks to safely navigate. It also poses safety problems for workers on the back of trucks.
There will be limited pick up in the Commercial Business District downtown after noon today.
Crews may work Saturday to try and make up some of the pick up for Thursday and Friday routes, if ice on the roads has melted enough.
The city says all trash/recycling will be picked up as quickly as possible in the next several days. The city asks residents for patience until the roads are passable and appreciates their cooperation.
The city will pick up all extra trash at no charge, customers are just asked to place the extra bags next to the trash cart. Yard waste & bulky item pickup will take a little longer to catch up, but the city expects to be back to a normal schedule by Thursday of next week.
