News Journal

WILMINGTON – The City of Wilmington announced Friday that, temporarily, there will be no curbside pickup for recyclables, effective immediately.

The temporary disruption in service is due to necessary equipment maintenance, the city stated in a news release.

Curbside recycling is expected to resume its regular schedule on Monday, Sept. 13. All other trash pickup services will continue as normal.

The release stated that the city appreciates residents’ patience while the equipment is repaired and they return to full operations.

If citizens want to dispose of recyclables before service resumes, they can do so by taking their items to one of the drop-off locations managed by the Clinton County Solid Waste District. The Wilmington locations are at 1274 W. Main St. (next to Bill Marine Ford) and 1025 S. South St. (in the parking lot of Job and Family Services).

For questions regarding the trash pickup or recycling programs, please contact the Wilmington Sanitation Department at 937-382-6474.
