Republic Services, Goshen’s trash collection contractor, is working hard to make their daily routes.

Due to the extreme cold weather, their diesel trucks are moaning and groaning about having to be out in the elements, but their mechanics are more diligent than those stubborn machines!

They’re on top of, underneath and inside the trucks to keep them on the street.

Remember, trash routes are delayed one day all week this week, due to the Christmas holiday.

Routes that are late in being collected should be caught up to schedule no later than Thursday afternoon. Republic Services and the City anticipate that the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday routes (being run on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week) will be picked up on schedule.

Customers may either leave their trash where it is regularly placed for collection, or they may bring it back into their garage or shed for collection next week. Whichever is more convenient for them.

If you have any questions, feel free to call Goshen’s Route Supervisor, Christopher Adams, Republic Services, at 218.6738, but we encourage you to be patient and allow a little extra time for the drivers to make their rounds as they, and their equipment, are able.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this beautiful (but cold)! holiday week.
