CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Officials with the City of Charlotte say collection service resumes on Monday.

Residents who did not receive recycling collection service during the week of February 10th are asked to place rollout carts curbside before 6:30 a.m. on Monday.

Yard Waste collection is suspended until Monday, Feb. 24, officials say.

Residents are reminded of the following tips to ensure collection:

-- Bag all garbage before placing it in the garbage roll-out cart. Do not overfill the cart.

-- Remove food/liquid residue and lids from all recyclable containers before placing them in the recycling cart. Do not bag recyclables.

-- Trimmings from shrubs and trees must be no longer than five feet in length and no larger than four inches in diameter.

-- Place leaves in untied plastic bags or uncovered trash cans (not City-issued carts).

-- Place collection materials curbside by 6:30 am on collection day. Roll-out carts must be removed from curbside by midnight the same day.

-- Place collection items within six feet of the curb. Please do not block the sidewalk.
