I have two recycling centres with maximum number of modifications and they are constantly congested - their storage of recycled garbage is constantly full or almost full (18-20/20 tons). As a consequence, the recycled garbage trucks are full and don't pick up more garbage which then piles up on the streets.
I've been monitoring the situation a bit and it appears that the recycling centres process the garbage only during the day. Is this true / intended? What hours is the recycling centre supposed to be working?
Also, quite often the recycling centre stops working entirely.. even though it has room for alloys/plastics/metal in its "output storage" and there are trade depots with appropriate empty lots available and factories out of materials. This appears to be a bug but even when the recycling centre works, it doesn't seem to be doing anything during the night.
Or do I simply need more recycle centres? My town has population around 150k. Should I build more of them, three maybe? A friend in the region also sent couple of his trucks, but at times it's still not enough.
The normal garbage trucks don't pick up the recycled trash, do they? It would be cool if you could get them to also pick up recycled garbage in case of any problems with recycling centres...
