Citywide trash pickup could be a day or two later than usual because of staffing shortages, the city announced Monday.

  • It's unclear how long staffing challenges will persist.

Why it matters: Trash collection is among Detroit's most essential services, but pickup was also delayed earlier this year by the same issues.

What's happening: An undetermined number of households could be affected.

  • The city is telling residents to continue placing their trash and recycling containers curbside on schedule and leave them there until their contents are collected.
