Trash pickup is still moving smoothly in Bradenton, but recycling and yard waste is piling up as staffing problems persist, but the mayor and other city workers rolled up their sleeves to fill in the gaps. Recycling cans and piles of tree branches line many streets in the city. Bradenton resident David Thayer says he’s learned to deal with it. “It’s a first world problem,” he said. “There’s not a problem with garbage. Household garbage they’ve been very good. Recycle and yard waste is where the issue is.”
