Delays in Collection:
Our hauler is struggling to keep up with the recyclable materials being produced during the pandemic. They are working hard to collect everyone’s waste but there are some days when the capacity is too great, the truck fills up and additional resources need to be brought in to finish a route, this extra help can sometimes delay your cart being emptied.
Thank you for your patience as we work to address this challenge with Republic Services.
