Trash Removal Services Update
The City's trash removal service provider, Republic Services, has provided the following updated information with regard to use of the new trash bins and pickup services.
Residents should begin using the new trash bins immediately rather than waiting until January 1, 2017. These bins were delivered within the past week. Residents that currently use a rental bin from Republic should contact Republic directly at (800) 888-5783 to make arrangements for returning these bins.
At this time, all residents must use the new bins for trash removal. Republic is considering options for those residents who do not want a trash bin.
All bins should be placed streetside for trash pickup. Effective December 14, 2016, Republic Services will no longer pick-up trash in the alleys except in the following circumstance...if your recycling is picked up in the alley, your trash will be picked up in the alley.
Residents should contact the City of Mishawaka Central Services (Street Department) at (574) 258-1660 with any questions or issues regarding trash pickup.
