Effective July 31, 2022 Republic’s waste collection contract with the City of Carmi will expire. Beginning Monday, July 25, as Republic picks up your trash they will also pick up their blue trash tote.
Beginning August 1, 2022, Bulldog will become the waste collection provider for the City of Carmi. Your trash day will remain the same. Bulldog will begin delivering their totes on Monday, July 25th. Some of the totes may say “Meridian”, “Yard Waste” or “Recycling”, but they are for your regular household trash. Please use these new carts beginning August 1, 2022.
Bulldog is working to deliver carts as quickly as possible. However, if your cart has not been delivered by your normal trash day, please place your trash on the ground in bags and Bulldog will pick it up. At this time, we anticipate that Bulldog should have all carts delivered by August 1st.
Due to the expiration of the Republic contract, and the acceptance of a new contract, the new trash rate will be $18.50 per month and will be reflected on the next Light and Water bill. The City of Carmi regrets any inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding during this transition.
