According to The City of Marshall, the schedule update is due to an overwhelming number of Marshall residents taking advantage of the recycling services offered by Republic Services.

As an effort to make recycle pick up more efficient, Republic Services will introduce an updated recycling schedule Friday, April 19.

“As we have gone through our recycling collections since we started once per week recycling pick up back in February,” Gene Keenon, Manager of Government Affairs for Republic Services, said. “We have certainly noticed some issues and challenges, and that the routes were taking longer to complete than expected.”

Due to this issue, the city has come up with a solution.

“With Department of Transportation laws limiting the number of hours per day commercial drivers can be behind the wheel, it has been necessary to carry over a partial route to the next day for completion, which put us behind schedule and caused us to miss some areas,” Keenon said.

City of Marshall says on April 19, customers with Friday garbage pick-up will not have their recycling picked up on the same day.

This will include addresses west of Highway 59 and South of Pinecrest Drive It will include odd numbered addresses on Hwy 59 and even numbered addresses on Pinecrest Drive. All other areas will continue to have Wednesday recycling pick-up.

The city reminds customers to have their carts out on the curb or street by 7 a.m. Also separate carts 4 ft. apart and away from any object. Face carts forward with the lid open toward the street.

In addition, carts must be removed from the curb within 24 hours after being serviced or collection service may be suspended.

“I believe this change will allow Republic Services to correct the issues they have been encountering with the recycling pick-up and allow for better, more efficient garbage and recycling service for our citizens,” City Manager Mark Rohr said.

Questions or requests for additional information about the change you may call Republic Services at 903-986-5324.
