Birmingham recycling center re-opens after fire, but city can’t resume curbside pick-up yet

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Birmingham Recycling and Recovery is back open after a fire caused it to close for nearly two weeks.

While the doors are open again, the City of Birmingham isn’t going to be able to pick up your recycling curbside this week.

Birmingham Recycling and Recovery is open again for commercial haulers and businesses, but it’s not accepting mixed residential recycling from municipalities right now, which means no curbside pickup on Wednesday, May 17.

The City of Birmingham usually does curbside recycling every two weeks on Wednesdays. But now, there is no word on when they will be able to resume pick up.
