In case you've been wondering about garbage pickup in Little Rock, given the weather mess, the city has announced:
Solid Waste Collections will be suspending all services except garbage collections from today through Sunday, February 13, 2011.
Crews are resuming garbage service today beginning with Wednesday routes. Any streets too icy for safe driving conditions will be skipped at this time, but they will be noted by staff and attempts will be made to return later when conditions improve on Saturday or Sunday.
Crews will move onto Thursday and then Friday routes as they are completed. Public Works asks that residents leave their carts out if garbage is normally picked up Wednesday through Friday, since staff cannot predict exactly when each day's routes will be completed. Staff plans on working Saturday (and Sunday if necessary) to complete all garbage routes.
