Arlington’s trash pickup for Thursday and Friday will take place on the regularly scheduled days, and Wednesday’s trash pickup, which was canceled on Christmas, is scheduled for Saturday.

Incorrect information was provided to the Star-Telegram by Republic Services for an article Wednesday about holiday closures.

For Wednesday recycling that was canceled on Christmas, a makeup day is scheduled for Saturday.

Trash in Arlington is picked up twice a week, so there is no need for a makeup day for trash pickup, said Robert Sloan, operations manager at Republic Services, the company that handles the city’s trash collection.

Thursday trash pickup will take place again Monday, and Friday trash pickup will take place again Tuesday, following the normal schedule.

The service schedule for Arlington was confirmed by a company representative, but Sloan said it “could be” that they were confused, as Republic Services handles a number of cities in North Texas with different pickup schedules.
