Residents whose recycling pickup is scheduled for Tuesday, March 14, may receive service March 15 instead as the City of Victoria is experiencing delays with its recycling pickup due to equipment issues.
Residents whose recycling pickup is scheduled for Tuesday should leave their recycling out on the curb. If it is not picked up today, it will be picked up Wednesday.
Because there are no trash pickups scheduled for Wednesday, the City will be able to use its trash pickup equipment to complete all of the remaining recycling pickups.
The City is in the process of buying new waste collection trucks to supplement its fleet. The City received one new truck last month, and it will receive another truck this month.
As a reminder, residents should always have their trash and recycling on their curbs by 7 a.m. on scheduled pickup days.
