Every week Republic Services picks up trash, recyclables and yard debris. But it’s been slow going this week with the snowy, frozen roads. So crews are asking customers to leave their bins out because they’re running on a delay.
For those who live on a hilly area, the trucks might not make it to those neighborhoods.
“Sometimes trucks can get to an area, but stopping a big giant truck like that on ice is very dangerous, and with kids out playing in the snow and with all kinds of things happening we are taking an overly cautious approach,” said Julie Jackson, the Municipal Manager of Republic Services.
If crews don’t get to your garbage this week, you can leave extra bags out for next week’s pick-up for free.
