Message from Mayor Weaver Regarding Garbage Collection in Flint
(Flint, Mich) – Flint city leaders are still working to secure a waste collection contract now that the previous service agreement with Republic Services has expired. Due to the circumstances, there will be no trash pick up in the city starting this Monday, August 1, 2016. Until a new agreement is officially in place, we ask that residents not set their trash out at the curb to prevent animals from disturbing it and making the situation worse.
“We hope to have a new agreement in place that will allow crews to resume trash collection by the middle of the week,” said Mayor Weaver. “We realize this is an inconvenience and we’re working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, we appreciate and thank the citizens of Flint for their cooperation.“
