Recycling Delays


Red River, the contracted recycling company for Huntsville, Madison City and Madison County, is operating with limited trucks which has caused delays in recycling pick up.  They currently have 4 of 8 trucks out of commission. The Solid Waste Disposal Authority (SWDA) officials have been advised that 2 of the trucks are expected to be back in the rotation by Friday of this week. Red River teams will work through the weekend and run routes later than normal to complete collections.

Recycling (RANA) Service Delay Update from the Solid Waste Disposal Authority:

RANA service delays continue due to uncontrollable factors affecting RANA’s collection contractor.  There are intermittent mechanical issues with trucks and health issues with employees that seriously impact the timeliness of collections.  While this is unfortunate and inconvenient for RANA customers, it is important that our residents understand RANA is working as hard as possible under the circumstances to return to normal schedules. 

RANA customers should leave their cart(s) on the curb to allow additional time for crews to collect their recyclables.  The collections times, unfortunately, cannot be guaranteed at this time. 

Please place your cart(s) out for service on your regular collection day (prior to 7 a.m.). Leave your cart(s) out until they are collected.

RANA officials appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as they diligently work to resolve the delayed collection issues and return to normal schedules.
