Republic Trash Services – A County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services representative called me to give an update to their questioning of Republic and all commercial trash haulers. I provided her a list of issues we have concerning disregard for our agreement, price hikes without notice, poor service and incredibly poor customer service practices. Apparently, all commercial haulers and also county are having trouble recruiting and retaining drivers and crew members. County representatives are still researching the issues and will hopefully update us as they go.

Stay safe.
