LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – City of Little Rock Public Works crews are continuing to work 12-hour shifts to clear streets after winter weather events left the city blanketed with record amounts of snow and ice.
As crews are diverted to make streets safe for travel, residents are advised that some services will be impacted this week:
Yard waste will not be collected this week. In order to pick up additional garbage not collected last week yard waste crews will be assisting garbage crews with these efforts.
Public Works is asking customers that have excess garbage to place it in bags at the curb by their cart with space left for the automated pickup of the carts.
So, customers will need to put their trash out this week on the day assigned to them and you can put extra trash in bags by the bin.
Crews will be on the routes to pick up this excess garbage from last week’s storms. No loose or uncontained material will be collected and residents will be responsible for secure storage and cleanup of any improperly contained garbage.
The City anticipates Waste Management will collect recycling on its normal schedule.
Public Works staff will contact customers that had dumpsters scheduled for last week about attempting to reschedule.
Bulky Item Pick-up
Solid Waste will continue with the bulky item collections previously scheduled last week to pick up those items and will work to be back on schedule as soon as possible.
Future collection scheduling may be adjusted to help reduce the backlog of requests.
