The City of Columbia has suspended curbside recycling this week due to "continued staffing issues in Solid Waste Utility." This according to a press release from the City.

This week, the week of June 29, the City of Columbia will only be doing normal trash collection and the pick up of bulky items. Customers are asked to take recycling to one of eleven recycling points in the City.

The City says while offices will be closed Friday to observe the Fourth of July holiday, curbside garbage pickup will take place on Friday as normal, and the land fill will be open. On Saturday July fourth the landfill will be closed and the Hazardous Household Waste event will be cancelled because of the holiday.
