Trash Collection Delayed by Snow

The City of Covington's third party trash collection service has discontinued its work for Tuesday.

A news release from City Hall indicates that weather conditions deteriorated to a point Tuesday morning that Republic Services (formerly known as CSI) halted its efforts.

Republic plans to resume services Wednesday morning, the City said, and will maintain its regular service schedule. 

Property owners should expect trash pick up to occur up to 24 hours after regularly scheduled pick up until Republic is caught up.  Therefore, property owners should place trash out at curbside on regular scheduled collection days no earlier than 6:00 pm the evening the day beforehand and leave it there until pick up occurs. If pick up does not occur within 24 hours after regularly scheduled service, contact 513-771-4200.

Call Republic Services 513-771 4200 or Department of Public Improvements 859 292 2292 with questions.

"We want to thank the residents for their cooperation and patience during this unpredictable deviation from our regular service schedule," Solid Waste Coordinator Sheila Fields said in a news release. "We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible and in the meantime hope that everyone stays safe and warm."

Please be reminded that trash should be set to curbside for the day of scheduled pick up no earlier than 6 p.m. the evening before. All trash should be set out in authorized containers with lids.
