NEWS RELEASE ISSUED AUGUST 28, 2013 BY THE CITY OF JOPLIN

Labor Day Schedule for Residential Trash Services and Recycling Center

The City of Joplin residential trash pickup schedule will change due to the Labor Day holiday. For the week of September 2nd, the residential trash collection ordinarily made on Monday will be picked up on Tuesday, and so on, using Saturday, September 7th to get back on schedule.

The Republic Services Transfer Station in Galena, Kansas will be closed August 31st through September 2nd. This “long” weekend is due to Kansas and Missouri solid waste, landfill, and transfer station regulations.

The Republic Services Transfer Station accepts bulky items for a fee (some rules apply) from qualified Joplin residents and Joplin residential landlords on the city’s residential trash service. Normal days are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 12 noon to 3 p.m., and again on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The City reminds those residents that do not wish to utilize the transfer station, to set out their (approved) bulky items with the weekly trash pickup and call Allied Waste at 800-431-1507 to arrange for the pickup.

The City of Joplin Recycling Center will be open as usual on Saturday, August 31st 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, as well as household hazardous waste and electronics; provides free wood chips, packing peanuts, moving boxes; and has a document destruction shredder available on a self-serve basis.

The City of Joplin and Republic Services has a contract that determines the observed holidays. The designated holidays that will push the pickup days 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/Thursday, the trash pickup 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, (417) 624-0820 Ext. 501 or Republic Services at (800) 431-1507.
