News release from the City of Joplin

City of Joplin residential trash pickup schedule will change due to the Memorial Day holiday.  On Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, residential trash will NOT be picked up.  Customers who usually have trash picked up on Mondays will have their trash picked up on Tuesday, May 28.  For the remainder of the week of May 27th through June 1st, the residential trash collection will move forward one day with Tuesday's customers having Wednesday pick-up, and so on, through Saturday, June 1st which will be Friday's collection day.   

The Republic Services Transfer Station in Galena, Kansas (that accepts bulky items from Joplin residential trash customers) will be closed on Saturday, May 25th through Monday, May 27th for the Memorial Day holiday.  The transfer station will reopen on Tuesday, May 28th.  During general operations, the transfer stations hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 12 noon to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The City of Joplin Recycling Center will be open as usual on Saturday, May 25th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The Recycling Center is always closed on Mondays.  The Recycling Center is open to everyone regardless of residency.  The center accepts all traditional recyclables, and provides free packing materials while supplies last.  Hours are Tuesday and Thursday 2 to 6 p.m., and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The City of Joplin and Republic Services (formerly Allied Waste Services) has a contract that determines the observed holidays.  Designated holidays that move the trash collection day forward by one day include New Year's Day, Christmas Day, and Independence Day if they fall on a weekday, using Saturday to catch up on collections.  If these designated holidays fall on a weekend, there will be no change in schedule.  Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving are also designated holidays.  Since they always fall on a Monday and Thursday respectively, the trash pick-up schedule will move to the next day using Saturday to catch up on collections.

For more information contact Mary Anne Phillips at the City of Joplin, 624-0820 Ext. 501 or Republic Services at (800) 431-1507.
