No trash pick up Friday, July 4th in the City of Joplin

Updated:
The City of Joplin residential trash pickup schedule will change due to the Independence Day holiday.  On Independence Day, Friday, July 4, residential trash will NOT be picked up.  Customers who usually have trash picked up on Fridays will have their trash picked up on Saturday, July 5th.      

The Republic Services Transfer Station in Galena, Kansas (that accepts bulky items from Joplin residential trash customers) is always closed on Fridays.  The transfer station will reopen on Saturday, July 5.  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 also be closed on Friday, July 4.  The Recycling Center is open to everyone regardless of residency.  The center accepts all traditional recyclables, and provides free packing materials.  Normal hours are Tuesday and Thursday Noon to 6 p.m., and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The City of Joplin and Republic Services have a contract that determines the observed holidays.  Designated holidays that move the trash collection 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 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.
