OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha's Public Works Department announced that solid waste collections are suspended Friday due to inclement weather and safety concerns.

The suspension is only for residential locations in Friday's service area where recycling and garbage have not been collected yet. Friday's collections will resume Monday.

Residents in Friday's area that have not had their garbage or recycling picked up yet are asked to make sure their carts are set out by 6 a.m. for collection starting Monday, Jan. 3.

While there may be some delays, collections for next week are scheduled for their normal day of collection.
