Beginning Monday and continuing for approximately two weeks garbage pickup in Columbus will be done one per week for household waste and recycling.
This means that collection will be on Monday and Tuesday only the week of Sept. 15 and Sept. 22.
There will be no yard waste pickup until further notice.
This decision has been made because the city has been notified that deliveries of unleaded gas and diesel fuel may not be made until the refineries on the Gulf coast are up and running again.
Never miss a local story.
In addition to that, the only city vehicles that will be allowed to fill up at the city's pumps will be public safety vehicles, garbage trucks and Muscogee County School District Buses.
