**TRASH COLLECTION DELAYS**

PRESS RELEASE

The Town of Wilmington is presently experiencing delays with the curbside trash collection.  The issues are resulting in an approximate half-day delay in collection, meaning approximately half of the daily route is being collected the day after the normally scheduled collection date. In the past week, the Town's trash hauler, Northside Carting, has been working extra hours in an attempt to get caught up.  Northside is reporting equipment failures as the primary cause of delays.

 Residents should continue to put their trash curbside on their regularly scheduled collection day.  In the event that the trash is not picked up on the scheduled day, and is in containers with secure lids, residents are encouraged to leave it curbside until collected.  If the trash is not in secure containers, residents are asked to bring it back in to prevent animals from getting into the trash bags overnight.  It can be put back out the following morning.

 The Department of Public Works  is in daily contact with Northside regarding the delays and reports all complaints of missed pick-ups to them.  The Town Manager is reviewing their contract relative to performance requirements.  Additionally the Town is investigating options for emergency collection services if needed.

 Wilmington is unfortunately in a similar situation as other communities utilizing Northside as their municipal trash hauler.  Northside's contract with the Town ends June 30th.  FW Russell will be taking over the Town's curbside waste collection service on July 1.
