Bristol, Virginia trash collection delays
Bristol, Virginia residents can expect delays in trash collection this week. Mayor Neal Osborne says the city was already struggling with a staffing shortage in the solid waste department when a few garbage collection trucks broke down this week, causing delays in trash pickup. He says residents shouldn’t worry if their trash hasn’t been picked up at normal collection times. HE said the city may rent a few trucks while they work to fill open positions and wait on repairs for the broken collection vehicles.
