Blue week recycling collections that were missed on Thursday and Friday because of the winter storm unfortunately cannot be made up next week. Residents with blue week Thursday and Friday collection should bag any excess recycling that does not fit in their cart and put it out with the cart during their next collection. This is an exception to the rule against bagged recyclables and will apply only to blue week collections for Thursday and Friday, Feb. 27 -28.
Residents also have the option of using the self-service recycling stations at Hanes Mill Road Landfill, 325 Hanes Mill Road; 445 Lindsay St., Kernersville; and 6328 Yadkinville Road, Pfafftown.
Additionally, corrugated cardboard can be recycled at all city fire stations.
The Sanitation Division previously announced that Thursday and Friday garbage collections and Thursday yard-cart collections will be made up on Monday, Feb. 17. All city residents should put their garbage out on their regular day next week and leave it at the curb until it is collected. Some collections may be a day late, depending on how long it takes to complete the make-up collections. But it will be collected. The same applies to yard-waste collections.
