Minneapolis shifts yard waste service amid driver shortage
Minneapolis is moving yard waste pickup to every other week for some neighborhoods due to a driver shortage.
The big picture: The city's announcement followed growing complaints over months of missed pick-ups in St. Paul.
- Local trash haulers also say industry-wide labor issues are to blame.
Zoom in: The service changes impact residents in South Minneapolis east of I-35W and south of Minnehaha Creek.
- Some Northeast customers who live south of 22nd Avenue NE will also see shifts.
What they're saying: "Staff understand this is inconvenient and are grateful for customers’ patience and understanding while the City works through staffing issues," a press release announcing the changes reads.
Of note: If you've gone two weeks without a pick up, you can call the Solid Waste & Recycling office at 612-673-2917.
