Garbage pickup on regular schedule Monday

Jan. 13. By Dave Vieser. On the heels of a communication snafu on New Years Day, Cornelius residents are now advised that the trash and recycling pickup for Martin Luther King Day on Monday is supposed to be normal. We say normal  because there is a complication impacting Waste Pro, the town’s trash/recycling firm according to Assistant Town Manager Tyler Beardsley.

“There have been significant delays at the landfill, sometimes as much as 3 hours, to dump. This has been an issue for several weeks, but has been much worse over the past two weeks.  The landfill operator is closing out a cell and that is causing delays.  This has been an issue for all haulers, not just WastePro,” Beardsley said.

The town has contacted Mecklenburg County Solid Waste to see if they can assist with this problem.

Bottom line: if you are scheduled for a Monday pickup, put out your trash and recycling containers as you normally would but don’t be surprised if it runs a day late.
