The City of Little Rock reports yard waste pickup is behind schedule due to an increase in yard debris.

Public Works Director Jon Honeywell said crews are working hard to get back on track as they see 800 tons of yard waste per week this time of year, up from the typical 350 tons.

"It will be January before crews can get caught up, but they are working hard to serve our citizens," Honeywell said.

For now, the city wants residents to know they don't need to contact 311 with missed yard waste requests. As long as the waste is placed curbside, it will be collected as quickly as possible.
