Holidays delay local garbage service

DALLAS — There will be no garbage or recycling services on Christmas Day or New Year's Day for Republic Services customers.

Local garbage service will be one day late after the holiday and for the rest of that week. For example, if your regular service day falls on Christmas Day or New Year's Day (Wednesday), garbage and recycling will be emptied on Thursday. If your regular service day is Thursday, carts will be serviced on Friday, etc. Drivers will work on Saturday to make up for the holiday.

Republic Service customers are asked to be sure to put carts out to the curb the night before or early on collection day as drivers may come by earlier than usual.
