Raleigh running behind on recycling pickup

Posted August 14, 2008 8:36 a.m. EDT

Some recycling customers in Raleigh will notice their bins are still full Thursday morning.

Pickup was not completed Wednesday on several routes across the city, Linda A. Leighton, city waste reduction specialist said. Crews will finish Wednesday routes Thursday morning before completing the usual Thursday routes, she said.

Residents with Wednesday pickup are asked to leave recycling at the curb. There is no need to call to report a missed pickup.
