Village Garbage Collection Change Begins in October

Over the last several months, the Village Board has researched the possibility of entering into an agreement with a single trash collection company to service all residential customers in the Village of Thomasboro.  After soliciting bids from several area companies, the Board has now contracted with Republic Services for all residential trash collection beginning October 1, 2016.  The first pickup date will be Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

The charge for trash collection will now be included as an additional line item on your Village water bill each month.  Republic will be delivering containers to each residence during the week of September 26th.  Please note that all containers will now need to be placed on the street side of your property for curbside pickup, as Republic is using specialized trucks that are unable to travel the alleys.

It will be the responsibility of each resident to contact your current trash hauler to cancel your service and to request a refund for any services that may have already been paid.
