ST. JOSEPH COUNTY Crews were unable to pick up the trash on Monday and Tuesday for a couple of reasons.
First, the cold temperatures posed a danger to workers plus the landfill was closed.
In the city of South Bend, trash pickup will resume Wednesday, and will continue through the weekend. “Well, if you're normally a Monday you actually get picked up on Wednesday this week and if you're a Tuesday you'll be picked up on Thursday,” explained said Andre Price, of the South Bend Bureau of Solid Waste. “If you're a Wednesday, you're actually going to get picked up on Friday and then if you're a Thursday collection—which our normal last day of the week—is actually picked up on Saturday this week.”
Meanwhile, St. Joseph County's curbside recycling program has modified its schedule, too. People who were supposed to have their recycling picked up on Monday or Tuesday will have to wait for their next regularly scheduled pickup in two weeks.
Otherwise, recycling pickup resumes--according to the normal schedule—on Wednesday.
