Changes to Trash and Recycling Services Update
The City is transitioning to Modern Waste for residential trash and recycling services for customers living in the City limits. Modern Waste will pick up recycling every-other-week on Wednesdays. Modern’s recycling service will begin on Thursday, December 27th (delayed a day, due to the Christmas holiday). The Trash pick up will take place weekly on Tuesdays. Trash service will begin on Wednesday, January 2nd due to the holiday.
Your trash and/or recycling account will not automatically transfer to Modern Waste. You must contact Modern Waste to continue to receive trash or recycling service. To set up an account with Modern Waste, call (517) 536-4900.
Republic’s last day of trash service for customers in the City of Jonesville will be Saturday, December 29th. The service will be delayed from the usual Friday pick up, due to the Christmas holiday earlier in the week. The last day of recycling service for Republic will be Wednesday, December 19th. On the last day of trash and/or recycling, place your cart at the curb as you normally would.
City of Jonesville residents are asked to contact Modern Waste before their Republic service ends to avoid a gap in trash or recycling services. Residents are asked to contact Modern Waste to begin service at (517) 536-4900.
A press release announcing the change, and a 2019 Collection Schedule are included below.
Leaf Collection Update
There is a good chance that if you live in town, your leaves have not been picked up yet. The combination of the leaves falling late and snow coming early has made collection a challenge this year.
If the long-range forecast holds, we should have a chance to collect some this week.
Collection will be slow - the leaf vac will not pick up frozen leaves and it is very slow with wet ones. We may collect some by tractor, which takes even longer. And if snow or ice comes, our DPW crew has to use its time and equipment to keep the streets plowed and salted first.
We know it has been a frustrating season. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will do our best to get things caught up as weather permits.
You Spoke...We Listened!
Last winter, you provided your thoughts and input about the future of the City through a community survey and meeting. The Planning Commission and City Council have drafted updates to the Master Plan - the document that guides the development of the City - based on what we heard. Now we are ready to listen again. Tell us if you think the Plan addresses your comments and concerns.
Check out the Framing Jonesville's Future section of the website, and let us know what you think about the draft Plan. Comments will be received for the next several weeks. The plan will be adopted after a public hearing after the 1st of the year.
