CARMI – The City of Carmi announced effective Sunday, July 31, Republic Services’ waste collection contract with the city will expire.
Beginning Monday, July 25 when Republic picks up trash, they will also pick up their blue trash tote.
Then beginning, Monday, August 1, Bulldog Systems will become the waste collection provider for the City of Carmi. Trash day will remain the same, according to officials.
Officials added Bulldog will deliver carts as quickly as possible. However, if a cart has not been delivered by normal trash day, they ask residents to place trash on the ground in bags and Bulldog will pick it up.
Due to the expiration of the Republic contract, and the acceptance of a new contract, the new trash rate for residents will be $18.50 per month and will be reflected on the next Light and Water bill.
The City of Carmi said they “regret any inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding during this transition.”
