Participation in Hagerstown's spring bulk cleanup has at least doubled, causing a delay in the pickup schedule, city officials said Thursday.
Bulk trash pickup in the city's northeast quadrant will be extended by one day, to today, city officials said. The northeast quadrant includes residences north of East Washington Street and Dual Highway and east of North Potomac Street.
More laborers and trucks have been added to the bulk trash pickup service, officials said.
"Usually we haul 60 to 65 truck loads of trash to the Washington County Landfill per quadrant. This year we have hauled 130 truck loads of trash for the Northwest Quadrant alone," Fred Decker, the city's Public Works Department's assistant manager, said in a prepared statement.
