The following is a message from TFC Recycling, the city’s recycling contractor:
There is a critical shortage of qualified commercial truck drivers impacting transportation systems across the country. Locally, TFC Recycling has a driver shortage, the cause of major collection delays. TFC Recycling is implementing aggressive driver recruitment and training programs to attract and maintain a fleet of drivers, including significant wage increases. Drivers are currently working longer hours and weekends to keep up with collection schedules.
If your recycling is not collected on your normal day, please leave the can at the curb. TFC Recycling will ensure that it is collected. TFC Recycling is working directly with the City of Norfolk to communicate service issues daily and requests that customers be patient with the city during this period. Thank you for your understanding and for recycling!
