The driver shortage is "due to COVID-19," the city said.

"Staff will continue to collect garbage, recycling, yard waste and bulk items on the regular schedule, however, the time of your collection may be earlier or later than usual," the release said.

To ensure that your containers and yard waste are collected, the city recommends residents bring all containers to the curb the night before or, at the latest, by 7 a.m. on your collection day.

The City Council has awarded a $6.19 million contract to Tantalus Systems Inc. to install advanced metering infrastructure equipment that will enable the city's Customer Service Department to read meters remotely without having to drive or walk by, which is the current method.

The city wants more neighborhood involvement because the process of resurfacing streets has grown more complex as the city becomes more ambitious about diverse modes of transportation. The Greensboro Department of Transportation has been working for years to beautify streets, make them safer for bikers and pedestrians and find ways to slow traffic beyond basic stop signs and crosswalks.
