RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Driver and worker shortages continue causing problems for recycling collections.

It first started in Chesterfield, but now residents in Ashland, Hanover, Henrico and Richmond are finding their bins still full after their assigned pick-up days.

Central Virginia Waste Management Authority says “Blue Friday” collections should now be completed, while “Red Monday” collections are delayed until Sept. 8.

Many ‘Red Tuesday’ routes will be picked up on Sept. 9.

Residents are urged to leave recycling bins out until crews come, or take them to a drop-off location.
