Aurora recycling service is cutting back temporarily because of driver shortage

The city of Aurora’s pickup service will reduce to every other week, according a statement from the Portage County Solid Waste Management District.

The scale-back is linked to the ongoing driver shortage in Portage County. The statement noted that the current drivers have been working too many hours and that the decision to reduce hours is a matter of safety.

Rates will be adjusted during the period of reduced service.
