Weather Delay Tuesday for Garbage and Recycling Collection

Yard waste pickup will be one day late for most customers

City of Raleigh curbside collection of garbage and recycling will be delayed on Tuesday, Jan. 4, due to inclement weather. Heavy rains Monday and the potential for overnight freezing mean a later start for our crews in the morning. 

If your regular collection day is Tuesday, please leave your garbage and recycling carts at the curb. Our crews will be working through the evening to complete all routes. Regular pickup of garbage and recycling is scheduled to resume on Wednesday, Jan. 5

Yard waste collection will be running a day behind the regular schedule for most customers this week.
Here is the adjusted schedule:

  • Tuesday, 1/4, yard waste collection will occur on Wednesday, 1/5
  • Wednesday, 1/5, yard waste collection will occur on Thursday, 1/6
  • Thursday, 1/6, and Friday, 1/7, yard waste collection will occur on Friday, 1/7

Please leave your carts at the curb and we will get to them as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience as we do all that we can protect our crews' safety.
