City plans recycling make-up day

Mansfield Environmental Services department and Republic Services would like to remind residents there will be no garbage or recycling collection on Christmas Day, Dec. 25. Residents who have a Friday recycling collection day will have a special make-up collection for recycling only Saturday, Dec. 26.

Garbage and recycling collection will also be suspended Friday, Jan. 1. There will be no special recycling collection Jan. 2.

Residents are encouraged to set their recycling carts out for collection Friday, Dec. 18, before the Christmas holiday, and on the make-up recycling collection day. Residents who are not collected on Dec. 18 or 26 must wait until their next scheduled recycling collection Jan. 9.

All recycling carts should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on the collection day. Please remember that the special collection day will likely not follow the standard route and the vehicle will be through your neighborhood at a different time than normal.

All garbage make-up collections will be on the next scheduled collection day.

All commercial make-up collections will be the following day.
