Benson Trash Collection Delayed

Trash collection in the Town of Benson scheduled for today (Wednesday) has been delayed.  The Town contracts with Waste Industries for collection.  Waste Industries is currently behind schedule and is critically understaffed in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

If your usual trash pickup day is Wednesday, your trash will be collected no earlier than Friday. If your usual trash pickup is Thursday, your trash will be picked up no earlier than Saturday.

Benson’s trash collection is dispatched from the Waste Industries location in the Fayetteville area where they are dealing with potentially catastrophic flooding.

While trash pickup will resume this week, Benson’s yard waste and recycling will not be picked up this week. Waste Industries does not have the staff to perform these services this week. The Town will update residents

about collections as the information becomes available from Waste Industries.
