ORANGE COUNTY, NC (January 26, 2016)—Orange County Solid Waste Management is announcing the Urban and Rural curbside recycling collections for Tuesday were not completed today, due to persistent icy road conditions.

The recycling collection drivers have been instructed to not travel roads they determine to be icy or unsafe.  According to those drivers, the majority of the roads on Tuesday’s routes continue to be ice covered and impassable. 

If Tuesday, January 26, is your normally scheduled curbside recycling day and it was not collected, those missed collections will not be made up. 

Urban and Rural curbside recycling routes for Friday, January 22, 2016, were cancelled on that day and were not made up, due to continued inclement weather the following day (Saturday).

Urban and Rural curbside recycling routes for Monday, January 25, 2016, were cancelled, but will be made up on Saturday, January 30, 2016.

Thank you for your patience and thank you for recycling.
