Trash & Recycling Changes coming January 1, 2016

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR TRASH SERVICE

Beginning January 1, 2016, REPUBLIC will be providing trash and recycling pick up for New Whiteland. With this change, it is necessary for the trash and recycling totes to be switched out from Rumpke to Republic.

NEW TOTES FROM REPUBLIC:

The plan is to deliver both new trash & recycling totes to New Whiteland residents the week of December 14th. Republic is waiting on the manufacturer of these totes, so delivery could be as early as December 7th. Along with the totes, Republic will deliver a pamphlet on trash guidelines.

RUMPKE REMOVAL OF TOTES:

Rumpke will be picking up their trash and recycling totes.

Recycling Totes will be picked up on December 2nd, December 3rd, and December 4th, depending on what your regular pick up day is. They will empty your recycling material and then take the recycling tote.

Due to the Christmas holiday, trash totes will be picked up on December 26th for residents who normally have Friday pick up. Trash totes will be picked up on December 30th and December 31st for residents with Wednesday and Thursday pick up. They will empty the trash and then take the trash tote.

AFTER JANUARY 1, 2016 REPUBLIC WILL ONLY PICK UP TRASH AND RECYCLING THAT IS IN THEIR REPUBLIC TOTES.

ANOTHER CHANGE is that residents must have their trash out by 7:00 am on their designated pickup day. Republic will not come back if you are late taking your tote to the curb.

Heavy trash pick up as well as recycling will be picked up on the FIRST PICKUP of each month. The trash rate will increase from $10.19 to $12.32.

The Town will no longer sell the $15.00 heavy trash stickers at the Town Hall. Residents will need to call Republic, pay for the trash sticker and give Republic their address. We will still sell the .75 cent trash stickers for extra trash bags.
