12-28 UPDATE at 5:30 pm – Residential Recycling Collection

Written by george on . Posted in News

12/28/18 Update at 5:30 pm:

Republic Services reports that they completed the majority of recycling collection today, but that some streets in the “Lower St Albans” section of the community were NOT completed before it became too dark to finish.  These are some of the streets around Brookside Road.  If you live in zone #2 and your recycling was not yet picked up, it will be first thing tomorrow (Saturday).

Please leave your recycling out one more night and Republic will finish on Saturday morning.  Thank you.

Newtown Township learned on Thursday afternoon that Republic Services scheduled zone 2’s residential recycling collection for FRIDAY, December 28th instead of today due to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day earlier this week.  Therefore, we ask that all residents in zone #2 please keep your recycling out so that it can be collected first-thing tomorrow – Friday.

This only affects residents whose recycling is in zone #2 and is collected on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. If you are in zone #1, you are still scheduled for collection as usual next Thursday, January 3rd.

Please see the below for other useful recycling information.

Again, if you were to have your recycling collected today, it will now be collected tomorrow, Friday, beginning at 7:00 am. Had we known of this schedule change it would have been communicated well ahead of time.  Thank you for your understanding and for your efforts to recycle.
