Republic Services will now pick up waste in Linden on Wednesdays rather than Fridays.
This change begins Wednesday, Feb. 3. This was announced at the Monday, Dec. 14 Linden City Council meeting.
Weekly yard waste collection will restart in April on Wednesdays.
“We are committed to providing our customers with the best, most cost-efficient service and we look forward to working with the city of Linden. If you have any questions regarding your new service day change, please call our Customer Service department at 1-800-438-0966. Thank you for allowing Republic to service your waste removal needs,” said Republic Services in a statement to the Linden City Council.
Mayor Danielle Cusson said, “We believe Wednesday will be better for our residents. With the new pickup day, our city office will be open the entire day and can more timely address any issues residents may have with collection.”
Republic Services also has announced changing collection days for residents in Fenton Township. Effective the week of Feb. 1, the company will pick up waste and recycle bins in this municipality on Fridays. Before, the company would do collection on different days in different areas of the township.
At a Fenton Township Board of Trustees meeting on Jan. 4, Gary Hicks, municipal services manager for Republic Services, said they’re working on consolidating their operations to make collection days run more smoothly.
