Great news if you live in the city of Atlanta! For the first time since February, the City will begin resuming weekly pickups for both recycling and yard trimmings.
An increase in workers calling out for COVID-19 back in February led to a shortage of available workers -- but the city has yet to resume the weekly pickups, leading to those blue containers STUFFED FULL and overflowing!
The city is now back to being nearly fully staffed, and thankfully is able to resume weekly pickups starting the week of June 7.
In the city, your long, overflowing recycling nightmare is almost over! PHEW!
