TIMES UNION REPORTS – Some Warsaw residents may soon have a new trash service day. New, realigned trash routes will go into effect beginning Monday, Oct. 4.

Throughout this week, stickers will be placed on trash carts at all residences in the city stating what their trash service day will be beginning Monday, Oct. 4, according to a news release from the city of Warsaw. Residents should look for the stickers on their carts. Trash service day for some residents will not change, and their sticker will reflect the same service day that they have been accustomed to.

A map of the new trash service days is available on the city’s website at warsaw.in.gov/trashmap. The map’s search bar allows residents to search for their specific address.

The new trash routes will provide more efficient trash service, leading to faster trash pick-up on most days and saving 15 to 20 hours of manpower per week that can be shifted to other public works projects, the release states. Less fuel will be consumed. Neighborhoods are now aligned so that trash cans will be out on the same day, improving neighborhood appearance. Leaf pick-up will also be more efficient as crews focus on one area at a time, rather than servicing cross sections of the city within a day.

Recycling service days will not be impacted, and residents should continue following Borden’s service schedule available at warsaw.in.gov/recycle.

As a reminder, all trash carts should be placed curbside no later than 7 a.m. on the day of trash service. To schedule large item pick-up, call the Public Works Department at 574-372-9561.
