Republic Services, the Joplin residential trash and curbside recycling provider, was not able to pick up the trash on Thursday, February 28 due to icy road conditions on residential streets and alleys.
Because of this, Republic will be running a day behind for the remainder of this week. Thursday customers will have service on Friday, and Friday service moves to Saturday.
“Safety is a top priority, said Mary Anne Phillips, Joplin Recycling Coordinator. “Pedestrians and motorists are reminded that heavy trash trucks have difficulty stopping on icy and snow-covered roads and alleys. We appreciate residents’ patience and understanding as we work through these challenging weather conditions.”
When services are delayed due to the weather, it is announced on local media stations and posted on the City’s social media sites. For questions about trash and curbside recycling, call the Recycling Coordinator at 417-624-0820, extension 1501.
