RANA said to expect delays in recycling collections, request residents leave carts out

If you are wondering why your waste for recycling has not been picked up, you are not alone. According to Solid Waste Disposal Authority of Huntsville (SWDA), which manages the Recycling Alliance of North Alabama (RANA), collections have been delayed due to uncontrollable factors affecting RANA’s collection contractor, Red River.

John “Doc” Holladay, the executive director for SWDA, said residents can expect to see even more delays. “There are intermittent mechanical issues with trucks and health issues with employees that seriously impact the timeliness of collections,” he said. “While this is unfortunate and inconvenient for RANA customers, it is important that our residents understand we are working as hard as possible under the circumstances to return to normal schedules.”

RANA customers are being asked to leave their cart(s) on the curb to allow additional time for crews to collect their recyclables. The collections times, unfortunately, cannot be guaranteed at this time.

Please place your cart(s) out for service on your regular collection day, prior to 7 a.m., and leave leave them out until they are collected.
