Ahead of the long weekend's forecasted snowstorm, plans for trash collection next week are still uncertain, Steve Cole, executive director of Greater Greenville, said.
"We're playing it by ear," Cole said.
Garbage pickup routes will already be delayed a day due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, and depending on road conditions the following days, services could be on hold for even longer.
The situation will be evaluated the night before, and Greater Greenville intends to post any changes to normal trash collection times on the Nextdoor app, Cole said.
The lower part of Greenville gets serviced earlier in the week, while areas at higher elevations are reached toward the end of the week, Cole said. Depending on how bad the storm is and how much snow melts by Tuesday, it's possible that only some routes will be altered, such as those higher up near Paris Mountain. Cole said he doesn't know how long those services could be delayed, as it depends on if road conditions will permit a garbage truck to pass.
"People may have to wait a week to get service," he said.
