Trash will continue to be picked up on Tuesday and Friday with recycling being picked up on Fridays. Friday is Recycle Day - so why are "garbage" trucks picking up our recycling? Republic simply does not have enough recycling trucks to send out every day. There are days when the recycle trucks are in for repair, and Republic needs to use their "garbage" trucks to pick up the recycling. Rest assured that Republic does not mix the trash with the recycling.
