Change for 16K Customers Next Week

GREENSBORO, NC (April 7, 2021) – Beginning the week of April 12, some Greensboro residents will see changes to their solid waste and/or recycling collection service. These changes are being made in order to meet growing service needs and to balance daily workloads for City crews. Approximately 16,000 residents will have a new collection service day or recycling week – all affected residents should have received a day change notice and/or new calendar in the mail. Other ways to find out if your service day is changing include:

* Visiting www.greensboro-nc.gov/collects<www.greensboro-nc.gov/collects> and type in your address to see if your service day is changing. You can also sign up for automated phone, email or text reminders to help you remember the new date, and print a calendar with your new recycling service week.
